Write a short summary of what happens in the film.
Young kid…wants marry…mom happy…brother advice…no marry…mom sad…kid sad…marriage destroyed; this is how we communicated our film; by creating a new lingo that cuts short in any sentence to make it understandable in just 2 words, why? Because this is how we would tell a story if speaking was charged for money in real life. In our film, we see a young man confronts his family of his willingness to get married when his brother starts convincing him not to, they start arguing the entire marriage journey that ends in divorce, the mother has no opinion she just gets moved by whoever is talking, we end the drama by the young man just backs down of the decision.
Cultural/Context information for the jury
In Egypt, the bond between the family is the strongest, to the extent that youth regardless their ages never move out unless they either get married or travel abroad. Family members share their secrets to family before anyone else, that’s also reflected on how much family calls each other during the day to give some updates or just making sure that everything’s alright, but the harsh economic status in Egypt is making people very careful while spending their money, this pushed people to do major cuts in their expenses to save as much money as they can, this also made them use their phones less; limiting calls to family, that’s why we created a new lingo that cuts short in any sentence to make it understandable in just 2 words, why? Because this is how we would tell a story if speaking was charged for money in real life.
