Jomanah Murad, leading star in “Sha’ban Al Faris”
The Syrian actress Jomanah Murad has agreed to play the leading role in the new film “Sha’ban Al Faris,” starring the comedic actor Ahmad Adam.

“The story of the film revolves around a father who feels weak and wants to prove hi strength to his son,” said Jomanah.
To prove that he is courageous he participates in a television show called “Al Faris Al Awal” (The First Knight). On their way to the television station they take the wrong car, unaware that the people in the car are going to commit a crime.
The father thinks that what he is being told by the men in the car is part of the television show, and he agrees to participate in the crime.
