Saudia Arab’s academy award nomination by Haifaa al Mansour is about a young hard working doctor in a small town clinic who cannot fly for a conference at Dubai without the allowance of a male guardian.
As maryam appeals to her politically affiliated cousin, the film depicts the challenges faced in a still-obscure society through saudi patriarchy. A society that has systematically marginalized woman and Maryam – our protagonist – creatively campaigning to fix the road in front of her clinic to addressing male voters becomes an accidental heroine that slowly gathers appeal.
