Synopsis: Four Egyptian young women show their inner worlds in a poetic, intimate and brave way as they search for their own identity and creative voice in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. Most of the material is filmed by the characters themselves, who all worked with the film’s directors in a process of collaboration and mentorship over a course of two years. They have found creative ways to express what is hidden within their hearts by speaking of their dreams and desires in an extraordinarily open way and by using metaphors to transform the every-day struggles of their lives into the sublime.
