Both part of a local theatre group, while Emad is out rehearsing one night, Rana stays at home and is violently attacked by a man who gets into the building. Hurt and afraid Rana struggles to come to terms with what has happened and pulls away from Emad, while he is torn between the want to revenge her attacker and what is morally right.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
