Like millions of young girls throughout the world, Heba must marry a man that she has not chosen. A drama of tragic proportions is being played out in a recluse village by the Nile Delta. Filmed in 2013 while Egypt was led by the Muslim Brotherhood, this film is a direct and wrenching descent into a personal tragedy experienced by so many young women today. Taking a stripped-down approach that proves to be both discreet and omniscient, both thoughtful and spontaneous, the film reveals the deep confusion of an Egypt in crisis.
