Die syrische Braut

Die syrische Braut

Deutschland / Israel / Frankreich 2003/2004, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Mona’s wedding day is the saddest day in her life. Once she will have crossed the border between Israel and Syria to marry Syrian TV-star Tallel, she will never be allowed back to her family in Majdal Shams, a Druze village on the Golan Heights currently under Israeli control. The story of Mona’s wedding day is a story about physical, mental and emotional borders and the will to cross them. A story about a family who tries to break down these borders and to get on with their lives. It centers on Mona’s sister, Amal, a young modern woman trapped in a culture and tradition she wants to break away from.

Once the border has been crossed, there is no going back, and at the end of a long day all those who gathered on either side of the border find themselves facing an uncertain future, trapped in no-man’s land between Israel and Syria.
