Watch: New Doc Follows Two Men Who Fell in Love During the Iraq War

Dusty St. Amand

In World of Wonder's new documentary, Out of Iraq, two men—one, a soldier, the other a translator—meet and fall in love on the Iraq battlefield.

Nayyef Hrebid, an Iraqi soldier, and Btoo Allami, a translator for U.S. militia, saw each other and immediately knew they needed to be together. However, two openly gay in Iraq spells almost certainly spells doom.

Hrebid told a Seattle news station, "It's losing your life. You get shame to the family. You lose your family, and you lose your friends, you lose everything, almost."

When Hrebid obtained a visa to escape to the U.S., he had to leave his lover behind, determined that their paths and lives could converege in the future.

Out of Iraq is directed by Oscar-winner Eva Orner.
