Abu Shadi is a divorced father in his mid-sixties 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 deliver the wedding invitations in person to each guest, as per local Palestinian custom. As the estranged father and son spend the day together, their tense relationship comes to a head and challenges their fragile and very different lives.
