Summary "In this beautiful, poetic and deeply personal film, Moroccan filmmaker Fatima Jebli Ouazzani investigates the status accorded women in Islamic marriage customs and the continuing importance of virginity. Ouazzani left her father's house in Morocco sixteen years ago to escape the constraints her culture and its traditions have put on women. She returns now to confront those traditions, her own family and herself. Following three generations of women -- her grandmother and mothers' arranged marriages, her grandmother's subsequent attempts to divorce, and Naima, a young woman who has returned home for a traditional wedding ceremony -- she questions whether her choice for a life of her own was worth the loss of her father"--Publisher's web site
