Wheelchair-bound Zdenka from the Czech Republic and Tabish from Pakistan met online playing Farmville on Facebook. But instead of a crop of virtual tomatoes, a real friendship grew, soon blossoming into a romance – and then a marriage. Five years into their official marriage, Czech authorities serially reject Tabish´s application for a visa to enter the Czech Republic, convinced they’re protecting Zdenka from a “feigned marriage” with a younger calculating Pakistani and the Czech Republic from an economic migrant.
After years of trying to prove their “real love” to a faceless bureaucracy and a relationship eked out online, a breakthrough in their case gives Tabish and Zdenka new hope that their dream of living together could soon become reality.
