Nomination Detail

Noureddin has been missing in action for eight years. After all this time, he’s assumed dead and declared a martyr. His wife has moved on with her life: she’s remarried and has two children. When Noureddin reemerges he is devastated to discover that his beloved wife’s life is a misery: for years she’s been subjected to physical violence and mental abuse by her new husband. Longing to resume his family life and save his wife from torment, Noureddin pursues justice. But the complexity of family dynamics means that achieving a happy ending is by no means certain, and as reason fails, violence erupts.

We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of country, including the custodial communities on whose land works are created and celebrated by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging. We recognise the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations peoples continue to play in storytelling and celebration spaces.
