Abu Shadi, 65, is a divorced father and a school teacher living in Nazareth. After his daughter’s wedding in one month he will be living alone. Shadi, his architect son, arrives from Rome after years abroad to help his father in hand delivering the wedding invitations to each guest as per local Palestinian custom. As the estranged pair spend the day together, the tense details of their relationship come to a head challenging their fragile and very different lives. Winner of 29 international awards including Best Film in Mar Del Plata, Amiens, Kerala, Kosovo and Dubai, Wajib is Palestininan filmmaker Annemarie Jacir's third feature film.
