Um Ghayeb

2014 • Egypt • 93’

In southern Egypt lives a woman who longs for a child. With no choice but to live on the margins of her community because of her infertility, Hanan lingers between a slowly receding dream and her struggle to find a place where she belongs. As everything around her swirls around fertility and mortality, she wonders how to make sense of the time ahead.
