The Image Nation Abu Dhabi film stars Emirati actors Mansour Al Feeli and Marie Al Halyan, Syrian actor Salloum Haddad and Kuwaiti actor Sa’ad Al Faraj.

“After months of hard work, dedication and passion, it is amazing to see Shebab Sheyab debut on the international stage. I hope audiences enjoy watching it as much as we did making it,” said Al Feeli in a statement.
