Wajib - The Wedding Invitation

M Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Wajib - The Wedding Invitation at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

A father and his estranged son must come together to hand deliver his daughter's wedding invitations to each guest as per local Palestinian custom

After years abroad in Italy, Shadi returns to his native Nazareth. But this is no spectacular homecoming. He's back somewhat begrudgingly to honour his "wajib" (or duty) to hand out invitations to his sister's wedding with his father. The simmering tension between the two — who are often stuck in a car, more often than not in traffic — builds, exposing the sometimes-comic chasms that exist between men who live in different worlds but share an unshakable bond.

This film is in Arabic language with English subtitles.
