A number of obstacles stand in the way of Rasha and Ma’moon, a young Yemeni couple, as only 10 days are left before their wedding.  They had tried to marry once before, but the 2015 war got in the way.  After so much suffering, they try the best they can to make it happen in 2018.  Yet again, obstacles appear but this time it’s not the war, it’s the aftermath.  Starting from having to evacuate their homes, and dealing with war dealers controlling their faiths, going through conflicts with armed militias, then ending with the economic crisis, the couple struggles to race with time to make sure the wedding happens on time.

Director Amr Gamal has been invited to attend and present his film.  He has applied for a visa and, if approved, he will be here!
