MAY IN THE SUMMER

0.00

High off the success of her first book and planning to marry Ziad, her sensible, stable and studious fiance, May (Cherien Dabis) has it all. At least that’s what she’d like people to believe. Reunited with her family in Amman, Jordan, she’s thrust back into the chaos of her former existence.

Her headstrong mother Nadine (Hiyam Abbass), a born-again Christian disapproves of her Muslim fiance so thoroughly she plans to boycott the wedding. Her younger sisters resort to behaving like kids, and her estranged father, Edward, is suddenly and suspiciously interested in making amends.

As her wedding day looms, May finds herself confronted with the aftermath of her parents divorce. And soon, her once carefully structured life spins out of control. (elledriver)
