Forbidden Love is a feature film about an 18 year old, Alan Thompson, who is in a rut and his only escape from the doldrums of life is to end it now! But things are not that clear cut! His mother intervenes and the recovery process reveals that he's adopted. So Alan, with a new perspective on life, heads north to find his biological family. While pursuing his birth parents via a departmental paper chase, Alan discovers the culture of Broome, in North Western Australia. In cosmopolitan, multi-cultural, vibrant Broome, Alan falls in love, makes friends, locates a talent within himself and eventually finds his natural mother. Life is finally looking good for Alan, until he discovers that his girlfriend is pregnant, and that her father is also his own. Alan is now faced with what appears to be an impossible choice.
