A queer culture expression, “U-Hauling” refers to newly formed lesbian couples moving in almost straight after they get together.The sweet romance often turns nightmarish if the couple splits up, which ultimately leads to a sudden, often drama-filled move out.

“U-Hauling is much more than a story about breakups, it’s a story about community and chosen families. Through the folx surrounding Iris, she learns humility. Through her entourage – more than the reason of the breakup – the queer nature of the show emerges: a tightly woven community, always there to support one another.” – Dani.ka Vermette, writer & director
