“Jalla! Jalla!” is Arabic for “Come on!” or “Hurry up!”.
Roro (Fares Fares) and Måns (Torkel Petersson) who are best friends, work at the park management and get to do all the menial jobs - clean up duck ponds and pick up dog poop. Roro's Swedish girlfriend Lisa (Tuva Novotny) wants to be introduced to his family but he refuses for a long time because of his Lebanese family traditions. When Roro finally decides to introduce Lisa to his family, he walks into the apartment full of relatives who are planning a marriage with the Lebanese girl Yasmine (Laleh Pourkarim).
Daniel Lemma was contacted by Josef Fares to work on the movie's score.
