Review by Oldenburg International Film Festival, Germany


Surrounded by temptations of the world of Western consumer culture, Amin and Hoda are in constant struggle to free their relationship from the shackles of traditional moral values and sexual taboos.


A fight, a few drinks too many, and Amin finds himself in a new relationship - with a storefront mannequin. Unlike Hoda, the new girl is a game for anything. And she doesn’t talk as much. A whimsical portrait of a young generation at a crossroads.
