For a Happy Life

1:00 PM 20th October 2019 Queen's Film Theatre

Challenging the burden of family beliefs, a young couple live a secret and passionate love story.

An arranged marriage between Mashir and Amel’s new best friend will put their relationship in danger. Tearing apart social conventions and age-long traditions seems to be the only way to stay together. The intensity of For a Happy Life lies partly in ambivalence, when the border between the executioners and victims becomes blurred, when love results in unreason, when friends and confidantes have conflicting interests. How do you choose between love and loyalty, future and friendship, when you’re only 17 years old?
