QFF Fall 2018
Current project status:
It’s wedding season in Qatar, MAHBOOBAH
(64), is a determined widow with no
boundaries that sets people up for marriage.
Over the course of her matchmaking career
and in spite of the varying types of people she
comes across, she always manages to rise
above any differences and eventually develops
a promising reputation as a matchmaker.
It is not until her only son, SAEED (27)
tells her he wants to get married to someone
she does not approve of. She forbids him from
marrying the girl he loves and attempts to
arrange a marriage for him.
