Mambo Italiano is a coming-out classic set in Montreal's Little Italy. Angelo is a nice Italian boy. He lives at home with his parents, who won't hear of him moving out until he gets married. The trouble is, Angelo is in love with another boy. When his sister Anna finally persuades him to come out of the closet, Angelo's traditional parents don't know what to make of his sexual orientation and nearly abandon him. And things only get worse when Angelo's mother spills the beans to his partner Nino's widowed mother, who Nino did not want to know about the relationship.

Often compared to a gay My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Mambo Italiano is the journey two families take towards honesty and acceptance. As in the real world, some make it, some don't, and some make it later rather than sooner.
