Synopsis

After waiting for many years, Ghita, Latifa and Karima decide to turn to the courts in order to obtain divorces. The procedure turns out to be not only lengthy, but also quite absurd. During their lonely struggle against the law and its harshness, bureaucracy, and society’s prejudices, the three women are assisted by other women who meet every day in a city park. This is the only peaceful place where the trio can share intimacies, and particularly their hope to put an end to their hellish situation, and find their rightful freedom and dignity.
