Where feelings are repressed prioritizing tradition
A story of a young man immersed in a society where feelings are repressed prioritizing tradition. A place to discover the authentic, means radical break with its future scheduled by his family. Least what it appears at a time, although the end is very open to personal interpretation of the viewer.
Outstanding performance of Omnia Ben Ghali, and a plot very well developed. A high quality film.
