A mother and her daughter explore four generations of women from their family, an Egyptian family originally from the Levant, a family where life and cinema have always been and continues to be intrinsically linked. Reality and fiction interplay as this intimate story moves between personal family archival footage and excerpts of Youssef Chahine’s autobiographical films. From Alexandria to Cairo, passing through Paris and Havana, a mother and daughter take us on a personal journey, both visceral and visual, as they question their emotions and destinies.
