A family deals with the typical anxieties of a wedding day while also confronting the political turmoil of the Middle East in this drama, a collaboration between Israeli and Palestinian filmmakers. Hammed (Makram J. Khoury) is a leading political figure in Majdal Shams, a Druze community that has been under Israeli occupation since the late '60s. Years ago, Hammed arranged for his daughter Mona (Clara Khoury) to marry Tallel (Derar Sliman), who has since become a successful actor in Syria. Hammed has gathered the family together to see Mona off, but the occasion is a bittersweet one -- given the combative relationship between Israel and Syria, once Mona crosses the border with her husband, it's unlikely she will ever be able to return.

Directions to film screen room . . .
Go through the school black gates to the yard from Singe Street (not church gates). Go into the building by the side door entrance on your left from the school yard gate (I'll put up signs). Turn immediate left inside and walk past the toilets and up the stairs to the top floor. Go through glass panel doors then left, through a corridor leading to the film room. Those with cars can drive straight to the end of the yard and park at the left side. Mob:[masked]
