Somalia's first Oscar candidate ever!

Guled & Nasra is a beautiful and moving love story about how much you are willing to sacrifice for the one you love.

Guled and Nasra are a happy couple living just outside Djibouti with their teenage son Mahad. Guled has a poorly paid job digging in a cemetery. When Nasra falls ill and is told she needs a kidney transplant to survive, the family's situation becomes desperate. The operation costs as much as Guled earns in a year. How is he going to get the money and at the same time keep the family together?

Shot in Djibouti, Guled & Nasra is the first feature film by Finnish-Somali director Khardar Ayderus Ahmed. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was selected as Somalia's first ever Oscar candidate.
