Love and lies collide on the streets of Melbourne in Osamah Sami’s sweet, funny and true tale of the lengths one man will go to find love – and avoid disappointing his very religious dad, a Muslim cleric who immigrated from Iraq.
Ali’s approaching marriageable age and when a sequence of well-intentioned lies starts hurtling out of control, he finds himself being reluctantly thrust into an arranged match – all while simultaneously falling in love with another woman, Dianne.
A fast-paced comedy of manners that shines with wit, humanity and crowd-pleasing charisma.
