She knows that once she crosses the border between Israel and Syria to marry Syrian TV star Tallel, a man she has never even met, she will never be allowed back to her family in Majdal Shams, a Druze village in the Israeli occupied Golan Heights. Her family must also contend with the clash between the traditional and the new, as Mona's various family members unites to see her off.
