At age 18, Fatiha divides her time between home and school. But when her parents decide to marry her to Hussein, her only a choice is to submit to their wishes. A Wife For My Son profiles the psychology of the "married wife" in modern Algeria. Based on his acclaimed novel of the same title, Ali Ghalem directs this beautifully photographed story of an arranged marriage.
