An intimate journey of hope and rebellion.

The life of Olfa, a Tunisian woman and mother of four daughters, oscillates between light and shadow. To fill their absence, director Kaouther Ben Hania calls upon professional actors and sets up an extraordinary film mechanism to unveil the story of Olfa and her family.

A captivating and violent story of intergenerational transmission and sisterhood — which will question the very foundation of our societies.

Nominated for Oscar® for Best Documentary.

“This is a heartbreaker about mothers and daughters — the cruelty of repression and the slippery but revealing nature of performance.” Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times.
