Hebba, a television talk-show host, produces a successful political program on a privately owned network. Her husband, Karim, is the deputy editor-in-chief of a government-controlled newspaper. When his promotion is threatened by his wife’s meddling in opposition politics on her program, he sweet-talks her into avoiding controversy and devoting her program to other topics. She begins a series of shows about women’s issues, revealing the stories of strong, resilient women who, like Scheherazade in A Thousand and One Nights, tell their tales to stay alive. Winner, Lina Mangiacapre Award - Venice Film Festival. Best Screenplay, Brussels International Independent Film Festival. Official Selection, Toronto International Film Festival.
