Abu Shadi, 65, is a divorced father and a school teacher living in Nazareth. After his daughter’s wedding in one month he will be living alone. Shadi, his architect son, arrives from Rome after years abroad to help his father in hand delivering the wedding invitations to each guest, as per local Palestinian custom. As the estranged pair spend the day together, the tense details of their relationship come to a head challenging their fragile and very different lives. Winner of Best Film at Mar Del Plata (Argentina), Dubai, Amiens, Kerala and nine other international awards, Wajib was Palestine’s 2018 Oscar Entry and features Mohammad Bakri and Saleh Bakri.
