About The Film
The chronicle of a wedding in a Palestinian village under Israeli occupation, this film provides a portrait not only of the bride and groom, but also of their immediate kin. It becomes clear that attitudes about marriage, women’s roles and politics are undergoing great changes. Despite the military presence, there is hope for the future.
