This dark comedy shows housewife Amra, who submissively stands by the side of her husband, caring for the nagging daughters and her sickly mother, even though the financial budget is dwindling. But even the most fervent prayers cannot spare her the unforgivable shame of not giving her husband a son. As he, shortly before entering pension, wishes to marry a younger second wife, the longing for revenge grows in Amra. That’s when the handsome widowed neighbor steps in… In his second feature-length film, Sabbagh continues to deride relationships in Saudi Arabia.
