A drama about three young Middle Eastern women living in the US whose lives intertwine as they defy tradition to create their own realities. Leila is the pretty, stable girl next door. She is arranged to be married, however as the wedding approaches, she becomes less and less sure of how her life is playing out. When she makes a desperate attempt to get out of this arrangement, things go terribly wrong. Amira is a shy and very devout Muslim struggling with deep repressed feelings toward women, but when these feelings start surfacing, she finds herself in a battle between her faith and her love for Nikki, a free-spirited, slinky, sexy and perpetual booze guzzler who is the life of every party, but not all fun and games. She is spiraling downward on a self destructive path while battling her own demons that have haunted her since a tragic death in the family.
Dir. Rolla Selbak, 2011, USA, 100 mins.
