Synopsis

Salam’s dream of becoming a mother shatters when she finds out that she is unable to have children with her husband. A lifetime of convictions and beliefs are put to the test as she realises she must make a choice.

Director’s Statement

Infertility and love together becomes a social stigma. The film poses essential questions on how social pressure and the expectations that parents have on their children to rise up to a certain image could negatively influence a person’s character. Human actions depending on external judgmental forces can destroy your inner peace, but what if we stand for what we believe in, to become leaders and not followers to what society wants to make of us? What if we already have the key to our cage in our pockets?
