Synopsis

Ramle and Yazur plan a big and traditional Palestinian wedding for their daughter, Bissan, who was born and raised in Berlin. Omar, who is Bissan’s husband to be, has dreamt of this night for the past three years; after he made it to Berlin from Lebanon under very harsh circumstances. Being torn between her family’s traditions, her German qualities, and mostly her complicated choices, Bissan is at a very dangerous crossroad, in which each step she takes will affect the people around her drastically. An uninvited guest shows up at the dancefloor and turns things upside down, leaving Bissan no choice but to return fire before her entire world burns down.
