In 1975, the hottest summer ever in Stockholm, two brothers, Juan and Tito, are working day and night to make ends meet. Juan has married a young Syrian woman and is now getting everything ready for his wifes arrival the following week. Juan is dead set on his waterproof blueprint for a good life... But there's one thing that he hasn't planned for: true love! One morning at the bus stop, there she is, Juli, a beautiful tango singer from Finland. Juli not only takes his seat at the bus stop, but also a permanent place in his heart.

God Willing isn't your parents' Swedish cinema. Amir Chamdin's whimsy is red candy Swedish fish to Bergman's lutefisk. God Willing is the story of a thwarted love affair set amidst the Swedish economic recession of the 1970s. Loosely based on the life of Chamdin's father, God Willing serves as a twee paean to the lives of the first wave of Swedish immigrants. In accordance with its period setting, the film was shot with 70s-era equipment and is predominantly black and white. With his debut, Chamdin brings us a film that has it all: politics, passion, and style.
