Single and middle-aged, Zainab lives a dreary existence as a local seamstress and her father’s keeper—a stubborn and distant old man who is going senile. After unexpected events, Zainab wakes up to find her father missing. Zainab must now reunite with her three estranged sisters at the old family home to find their father, unwillingly creating a recipe for disaster. As the search for him begins, buried secrets come out, and the sisters get pushed to the edge. Through fights and laughter, the sisters realise that only through overcoming their differences will they find their father, and discover who they truly want to be. ‘Daughters of Abdul-Rahman’ is a universal family drama about women making choices in a patriarchal society. It is a realistic and uplifting tale about four different women who confront the truth about themselves in the most unlikely of situations.
