Alia has a secret passion: she wants to be a screenwriter. After years of suppressing her ambition, she resolves to turn one of her stories into a film. Surprisingly, she finds herself confronting her innermost fears, embodied as reality in every scene. When she reveals her plan to her husband, whom she has supported in his work for years, his reaction shocks her. She sees how her life has unfolded, starting with elementary school dominated by an authoritarian teacher, to her secondary school where she had to confront a friend, until she was first married and in conflict with the family’s and society’s expectations. She realises that, in telling her story, she is on an inner journey towards taking control of her life.
