Project Description

A STORY OF TWO YOUNG SOULS WHO FALL PASSIONATELY IN LOVE AND BY SO DOING CREATE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR CONFLICT AND BLOODSHED

Cherkess story line

The film story covers the arrival of immigrant Circassians to Ottoman Transjordan in the year 1900. Dostoyevsky said ‘Beauty will save the world’… and this film is based on such a perception. The film shows the different aspects of two cultures, the Bedouin and the Circassian, who were thrown together unwillingly by historical providence, creating a perfect recipe for controversy and violence but saved by the miraculous powers of innocent, unexpected love.

The quintessence of drama, when the pendulum could swing in either direction.

This is a story of two young souls who fall passionately in love and by so doing create the opportunity for conflict and bloodshed… as well as for potential harmony and peaceful coexistence.
