What is it like to grow up as a gay guy in a heterosexual world? And if you know that, how do you view gay jokes?  In this acclaimed personal story Nicolaas Veul, the award-winning Dutch TV and documentary director investigates the impact of such words on young gays and how tolerant Dutch people are with regards to homosexuality.  Filmed in football locker rooms, schools where #nohomo is the latest trend on social media, and with random people on the streets, the film is largely about the thin line that lies between humour and homophobia.
