The Syrian Bride

Library Resource
Eran Riklis

In Majdal Shams, the largest Druze village in Golan Heights on the
Israeli-Syrian border, the Druze bride Mona is engaged to get married
with Tallel, a television comedian that works in the Revolution Studios
in Damascus, Syria. They have never met each other because of the
occupation of the area by Israel since 1967; when Mona moves to Syria,
she will lose her undefined nationality and will never be allowed to
return home. Mona's father Hammed is a political activist pro-Syria that
is on probation by the Israeli government. His older son Hatten married
a Russian woman eight years ago and was banished from Majdal Shams by
the religious leaders and his father. His brother Marwan is a wolf
trader that lives in Italy. His sister Amal has two teenager daughters
and has the intention to join the university, but her marriage with Amin
is in crisis. When the family gathers for Mona's wedding, an insane
bureaucracy jeopardizes the ceremony.
