Venue Lennox Theatre

Jordan | 100 min| Dir: Cherien Dabis

High off the success of her first book and planning to marry Ziad, her sensible, stable and studious fiance, May has it all. At least that’s what she’d like people to believe. Reunited with her family in Amman, she’s thrust back into the chaos of her former existence. Her headstrong mother (Hiam Abbass), a born-again Christian disapproves of her Muslim fiance so thoroughly she plans to boycott the wedding. A story about love and family – not to be missed!
