Director Statement

Making a feature film for the first time is an experience worthy of sacrifice. I tried hard, as a filmmaker, to shed light on issues that concern Arab citizens in general, and Yemenis in particular, through a story that discusses women’s issues and cancer patients, with a romantic human story that challenges Arab circumstances and traditions.
