Mariam’s marriage is in turmoil when she discovers she’s
pregnant. Trapped in a prison of lies and societal pressure in
present-day Beirut, Mariam yearns to break free. Filmmaker Farah
Shaer’s vision is blunt and uncompromising. An intense mise-en-
scene and a subtle performance by Hiba Sleiman amplify Mariam’s
perseverance, despite the obstacles she faces.
