The library's free foreign film series presents an award-winning film from Israel by director Maysaloun Hamoud, screening at the Chief Theater.

"[A] breezy, light-hearted dramedy of girl power..." – The Hollywood Reporter

Maysaloun Hamoud's remarkable debut feature follows three strong and independent-minded Palestinian women who share an apartment in Tel Aviv. Away from the constraints of their families and tradition, they find themselves in between the free and unfettered lives they are aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them by society. Laila, a successful lawyer, craves the love of a good man and thinks she's found him in the apparently open-minded and handsome Ziad. Salma, while striving to fulfill her dream of becoming a DJ, falls for a beautiful doctor, but is forced to keep their love a secret from her family. Laila and Salma's hard partying lifestyle initially comes as a shock to the more traditional and reserved Nour. She is engaged to marry a seemingly devout Muslim, who, behind closed doors, is not the man he appears to be. Eventually, a shocking series of events will push these brave women to the limits and change their lives forever, while also sealing their bond of friendship.
