Three women's lives converge on a bus heading to a men's prison, through the Lebanese desert.
1 April 2010 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Three women's lives converge on a bus heading to a men's prison, through the Lebanese desert. The women have each come to this place because of their men, but for very different reasons.

A random, shattering event propels them out into this terrible place alone, with only each other to rely on. A deadly world of hot sun, distant artillery fire, and mute packs of refugees, always leaving.

In her first feature film, Dima El-Horr composes scenes of acute intimacy against an epic vision of desolation, punctuated with sequences of hyper-realistic symbolism. Hiam Abbass, Manal Khader and Raïa Haïdar are each fascinating to watch, and deeply eloquent as they inhabit three unforgettable characters.
