Mona's (Clara Khoury of Rana's Wedding) wedding day may be the saddest of her life. Once she crosses the border into Syria, she will never be allowed back to her beloved family in the Druze village of Majdal Shams.

Shot on location in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights,The Syrian Bride is a powerful film about physical, mental and emotional borders and the courage it takes to cross them. Told with great humor and compassion, its story provides an emotionally stirring look at the human side of political conflict, focusing on the hopes and dreams of one family trapped in a no-man's land between two nations.
