Married at the age of 11, Noura was never given the chance to go to school. For most of her life, she was the wife and mother society expected her to be. But when her youngest child began his studies, so did she. Now 40 years old, Noura is at last accomplishing her dream of getting an education. In a tribute to her mother, director Amina Ahmed Al Bloshi follows Noura on this path and celebrates her tremendous achievement.
