Writes Dabis:

The film is a cross cultural drama / comedy about a thirty-something New Yorker who goes home (to Jordan!) to plan her summer wedding only to be confronted with the fallout of her parents divorce (A divorce drama disguised as a wedding comedy if you will!) The one thing I can promise you is that it will transport you to another place (Amman, the Dead Sea, a stunning desert in the south of Jordan) where you will see a side of the Middle East you almost never get to see in film, television or media.

Release Schedule:
