After a “white lie” which spirals out of control, a neurotic, naive and musically gifted Muslim cleric’s eldest son must follow through with an arranged marriage, except he is madly in love with an Australian born-Lebanese girl.


Ali, Osamah Sami, feels like he’s got a lot to live up to. His brother was killed by a landmine, his father is a cleric, and his other brother is clearly not going to become a doctor. So it’s all on him. Lies are born.

Ali is a sympathetic character, but I’ve never been fond of lies and poor communication as a plot device. His motivation is better than most so it didn’t bother me as much as it normally does. Still, the lies go on for a long time.

A crush he’s had for a while ends up blossoming into love, but of course the lies end up biting him in the butt. Thankfully, there is a very happy ending.

I guess, being able to tell the truth to friends and family, isn’t always a privilege people have.
