Inside the Chinese Closet

Determined to do things the right way, we follow Chinese homosexuals Andy and Cherry in a desperate attempt to meet their parents’ expectations.

Desperate to please their parents, Andy goes on a hunt for a lesbian woman to marry and Cherry in search of a baby to adopt. Being homosexual makes it hard to conform to their families’ and society’s expectations, but both Andy and Cherry are determined to do things ‘the right way’. Inside THE CHINESE CLOSET follows Andy and Cherry in their search. Through these encounters the film lays bare the challenges that confront gay people in China today.
