Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Love and loyalty are the theme of this Syrian comedy. The story is somewhat reminiscent of Cyrano de Bergerac, in that the love-struck Ismael is an ungainly fellow with glasses and a very, very big nose. He has persuaded his very good friend Ghassan, who, though quite shy, is much better looking, to plead his case with Salma, a beautiful young villager. She falls in love with the messenger, who nonetheless remains loyal to his friend.
