"At first glance the theme of the film is sexual harassment, but in fact it is about breaking the silence… We have the tendency to keep quiet about problems instead of solving them", says Mohamed Diab, the director of the film. In his impressive directorial debut aided by outstanding performances, Diab tells the story of three women in Cairo from different social backgrounds who will no longer tolerate being harassed by men and want to take the perpetrators to court.

The film is based on true events and generated widespread discussion in Egypt about women`s position in Egyptian society – even before the start of the protests on Tahrir Square.
