Muna – a young bold woman – is sick of being controlled by the rigorous restrictions imposed on her by the government. After her arranged marriage, she sees a life that threatens her free will and sets out to find her own escape. By filming through her hijab, she has documented the claustrophobic moments of her journey.
As her documentation becomes her lifeline, she let’s viewed into her innermost thoughts as her wedding/escape draws near. Viewers can’t help but empathise with her courage to risk prison, but will she get her freedom? Equal parts vulnerable and riveting, it is full of hope and fear for a better life.
