Synopsis

Reem and Mahmoud have faced all kinds of obstacles in their lives together – convincing their parents they should get married was something of a challenge, for example. Now, the couple want to go to America to deliver their first child, but paperwork, Doha traffic and the scheduling whims of the US Embassy all conspire to stand in their way. Fast-paced and very funny, ‘Passport’ shows us there’s a cheerful work-around for everything.
