About the Film
Salam is a young housewife who dreams of motherhood. She quietly suffers within the codified Middle Eastern society, while trying to help her husband Ammar overcome his reproductive condition. One day, her mother-in-law informs her that the family has decided that Ammar should find a second wife, assuming that she’s infertile, and telling her that she has no right in depriving their son of fatherhood. Ammar helplessly stirs Salam into a different direction, leading her to fight the battle in her own way. Give Up The Ghost will premiere in the Orizzonti section of the 76th Venice Film Festival.
