Summary
In director Randa Chahal Sabbag's fairytale for troubled times, sixteen-year-old Lamia must cross a border checkpoint between Lebanon and Israel to marry a man she has never met. Neither she nor her betrothed are eager to consummate the marriage, a matter further complicated by Lamia's surprising admission that she is in love with the Israeli soldier guarding the border
