Facing deportation from the UK, a young Iranian student, Reza Mostafai, claims asylum on the grounds that he is gay, fearing for his safety if he is returned to his homeland.

With the help of his barrister Fiona and best friend Lulu, Reza must try and find a way to prove his sexuality in time to halt his removal. Can they find someone to come forward to testify to the truth of Reza's claim?

Christine Murphy's debut radio drama is a powerful and shocking story of one man's desperate attempt to prove his homosexuality.

Starring Jamie Harding as Reza, Sophia Myles as Fiona, and Vicky McClure as Lulu, the cast also includes Ben Caplan, Zubin Varla, Ian Beattie and Maggie Cronin.
