A simple love affair challenges family ties, friendship and any hope of happiness in this accomplished debut feature from directors Salima Glamine and Dimitri Linder. In Brussels, Mashir (Zeerak Christopher) has fallen in love with Amel (Sofia Lesaffre), a teenager of Algerian origin. Fearing disapproval, they keep the relationship secret from their families. Future plans are put in jeopardy when Mashir’s traditional Pakistani father decides to arrange his marriage to a cousin who now lives nearby. Defying his father’s authority has unexpected consequences for everyone.
