DFI Cinema Under the Stars
- Come back soon to see screening dates
Of her seven siblings, Maryam is the only one who isn’t married. Because of this, the young woman begins to wonder… if she were just a bit shorter, or if she lost a few kilos, or if she changed her nose, would she have a husband? These troubling thoughts lead her to contemplate extreme measures: plastic surgery. In this light-hearted take on a serious subject, director Zainab Mohammed Ayon explores the pressure to be beautiful that faces women in the Gulf – and all around the world.
