“When Harri Met Salma” (starring Mia Morrissey, Teresa Moore, James Thomasson; written by Sanja Katich, directed by Corey Booth, produced by Mélanie Julien-Martial) is the story of two young women falling in love.
Salma is trying to do the right thing by her family - they want her to get married to a nice Persian guy and settle down. Completely not interested, she’s doing her best to keep them at arm’s length, while managing her growing love for Harri.
Harri, on the other hand, is out and proud and not used to hiding or keeping secrets. She wants to share her love for Salma with the world.
Salma is stuck between being the perfect daughter and sister to her family, while also being open in her love for Harri. The question is – what will she do?
