Jibril

Originaltitel: Jibril

Captivating acting and bittersweet realism in a love story, as impossible as it is irresistible, by feature film debutant Henrika Kull. Maryam lives an independent life as a divorced mom of three daughters. During a wedding party, she exchanges glances with Jibril who is on leave from prison. The following spring, they accidentally meet again when Maryam visits the prison and an intense love begins. Both are passionately fulfilled by each other and they carelessly throw themselves into what seems to be an impossible relationship. With great tenderness and rigor, Henrika Kull depicts the evanescence of love through two lonely persons thirsting for affinity.
