Presented with the participation of Keswick Peace and Human Rights Group.

Two young lovers are university students in the West Bank and hail from Gaza. Forced to return home before completing their courses and now within a more religious and traditional environment, their love story can continue only by marrying. But can a lowly construction worker living in a refugee camp convince her father that he can provide for his beloved daughter?

Judged best Arab feature at the Dubai Film Festival following its initial bow at Venice Days and Toronto Discovery. Shot in the occupied Palestinian Territories, the first fiction film shot there for 15 years, the digital camerawork earned the film technical awards.

Thanks to Susan Youssef.


A major new talent in Arab cinema.
