Homage to the Bedouin girls and women of the Sinai Desert: An Egyptian filmmaker’s journey to the remote regions of a militarized Sinai Peninsula sparks an intimate dialog when she encounters a Bedouin social entrepreneur in a tiny village in the shadow of Moses Mountain. In this harsh desert terrain, where water is scarce and the eyes of the army watch the Bedouin closely, Selema the Bedouin struggles against patriarchal traditions to bring economic prosperity and education to the girls and women of her community. As filmmaker Iman Kamel is invited into the women’s inner circles she discovers that their contrasting lives are more connected than might appear on the surface: Everyone is bound by the passion to be a nomad in today‘s modern life. Beit Sha‘ar gives an unprecedented insight into the lives of Bedouin women of the Al Gabalia nomads in Egypt.
