Sabah is a 2005 film directed by Ruba Nadda.

The film stars Arsinée Khanjian as Sabah, a traditional Muslim woman living in Canada. She falls in love with a non-Muslim Canadian man (played by Shawn Doyle).

Filmed in Toronto, Nadda had only 20 days to complete principal photography of this project.


One day, when Sabah least expects it, she falls in love with the wrong man. She's Muslim, he's not. Unbeknownst to her family, she goes on a whirlwind affair before both culture and love collide.
