Jeanie’s character is a young woman of French citizenship that falls in love with the main character in the drama “Abid Karman”, which is played by prominent Syrian actor Tayem Hassan. Throughout the events of the drama, Jeanie’s character becomes Abid’s unforgettable love that leads him to travel to France to be with her.
