Synopsis

Hend, a 19-year-old Qatari woman, sees in blue, and hears whispers that stop only when she reads. Her mother believes that marrying off her daughter will cure this strange condition. During her engagement party, Hend struggles to decide whether to go through with the marriage, or keep her blue world and the voices in her head. Her choice strains relations with her mother, whom Hend considers the most important person in her life.
