Um Isaac, Um Hanna
The film features the story of two old widows who get to meet each other through destiny. The two live in small apartments separated by a street in one of Amman’s modest neighborhoods. Lorees (Um Isaac) and her neighbor Um Hanna feel enormously lonely and left on their own. They try to overcome their weakness and solitude through by bonding together. The film traces their daily life before Easter, showing all the preparations, unaware of an unexpected incident that is about to change everything.
