The Syrian Bride

Synopsis: In Majdal Shams, the largest Druze village in Golan Heights on the Israeli-Syrian border, the Druze bride Mona is engaged to get married with Tallel, a television comedian that works in the Revolution Studios in Damascus, Syria. They have never met each other because of the occupation of the area by Israel since 1967; when Mona moves to Syria, she will lose her undefined nationality and will never be allowed to return home. Mona's father Hammed is a political activist pro-Syria that is on probation by the Israeli government. His older son Hatten married a Russian woman eight years ago and was banished from Majdal Shams by the religious leaders and his father. His brother Marwan is a wolf trader that lives in Italy. His sister Amal has two teenager daughters and has the intention to join the university, but her marriage with Amin is in crisis. When the family gathers for Mona's wedding, an insane bureaucracy jeopardizes the ceremony.

wedding at the Kuneitra border today at 3pm.

No problem, except the bride

is the daughter of Hammed Salman

who's pro-Syrian, out on parole,

and there's a warrant against

him going to the border region. Clear?


When is Marwan arriving?

I need someone to help me.

He'll be here soon,

his plane landed at six.

But you can't rely on

Marwan with these things.

And when is Hattem

supposed to arrive?

If Amal and my daughters

were back, they'd help.

Who'll help me?

Everyone will be at the demonstration.

No one'll help me!

Amin, stop complaining!

Go and slaughter some more sheep.



One, two, three!

Smile, everybody.



what's wrong?

Did something happen?

Isn't she a beautiful bride?


We'll never see her again.

What do you mean?

She'll come visit, won't she?

Why won't you see her again?

I don't get it at all.

I'll miss you.

Film me, I want to say something.

Tallel, when you see this,

Mona will already be your wife.

It's the last time I see her.

We're giving you our treasure.

Protect her like the apple of your eye.

Watch over her.

Congratulations to the bride.

Best wishes, Mona.

The village elders are here.

Go inside.



Go to your room.

Go upstairs...

Listen, Hammed...

You know how much we respect you.

We've heard your son

Hattem's coming to the wedding.

As far as we're concerned, he's outcast

since he married the Russian.

If he shows up,

you won't see us here.

Dear friends,

Hattem hasn't been here

for more than 8 years.

Today is his sister's wedding.

You know that this will

be his last chance to see her.

Listen, Hammed, you know

how much we appreciate you.

If it were anyone else,

we wouldn't have troubled ourselves

to come.

We'll never forget
