The Syrian Bride

Eran Riklis

The story takes place on the wedding day of a beautiful bride, a Druze woman in Majd Alshams, a pro-Syrian village located in the Golan Heights. She is to marry a Syrian TV soap opera celebrity and she knows that this will be the last time that she sees her family as once she crosses the border she can never return to the Golan Heights. To make matters worse, the paperwork at the border does not allow her to cross over. Makram Khoury as the bride’s father and Hiyam Abbas as the bride’s sister lift the film to new heights with their performances.
