With his sons, Refaat (a passionate cook) and Galal (a womanizer), chef Yehia manages a wedding caterer. Karima, Yehia’s niece, is promised to Refaat, but he loves Shadia, without knowing that Karima loves also someone else. Over the course of the wedding, Karima finds a way to reveal her feelings.

Our take

Egyptian auteur Yousry Nasrallah deftly weaves between drama, comedy and subtle political insight in this warm and colorful social tapestry. Romantic, business and sexual relationships swirl around a wedding, a grand, music and food-filled event touching all types of people, wealthy and working.
