"Sabah" is a 2005 romantic comedy. Dutiful 40-something daughter Sabah (Arsinée Khanjian) shocks her conservative Arab family by falling for Stephen (Shawn Doyle), a non-Muslim, in this romantic comedy set in Toronto. The relationship sparks a culture clash, ensnaring Sabah between Stephen and her tight-knit family. Like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, director Ruba Nabba's film reveals what happens when Old World tradition collides with modern love. Setta Keshishian co-stars. "Sabah" directed by Ruba Nadda.
