Watch: Roms Coms Span All Cultures in Trailer for 'Amira & Sam'

An official choice for Indiewire’s Project of the Month, “Amira & Sam” features an unlikely couple faced with an ultimatum: their love or, in this particular case, their duty. 

Sam (Martin Starr), an American war vet, is on his way to see Bassam (Laith Nakli), a friend he made during his tour in Iraq. There, Bassam’s feisty and free-spirited niece Amira (Dina Shihabi) catches his eye and the two fall in love. However, because Amira is an illegal immigrant, the couple faces the fear of loosing one another after her pending deportation. Will they find a way to stay together?

Filled with quirky jokes and real-life social struggles, “Amira & Sam” promises rom-com satisfaction in a different atmosphere. “Amira & Sam” will screen in select theaters across the US and will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats in early 2015. Check out the trailer below:
