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.
