Lamma Dehkat Monaliza (When Monaliza Smiled)
Grumpy Monaliza, in her 30s, rarely smiles. She works in a government office, where she meets Hamdi, an affable Egyptian tea boy. Together they dream of a life straight out of the romantic movies of yesteryears, with Omar Sharif and Faten Hamama… Their fantasy is challenged as they're surrounded by inquistive individuals, who impose restrictions typical of Amman’s society.
