About Unicorns

A powerful story of forbidden love and colliding cultures unfolds when hard-working single father Luke meets beautiful drag queen Aysha. Unable to deny the spark between them, the pair are forced down the unexpected path of transformation, where they must confront their individual truths and decide if their love can exist beyond traditional labels.

Co-directed by Sally El Hosaini and filmmaker-actor James Krishna Floyd, Unicorns alternates between the thrill of raw desire, the gravity of familial responsibility, and the transformative power of being seen for who you really are. Ben Hardy and newcomer Jason Patel shine in this summer’s must-see romance.
