Au delà des rapports mère-fille, cette histoire propose une réflexion sur le rôle imparti à la femme au sein de la société moyen-orientale, celui de mère.
Because she suffocates under rigid traditions and social constraints, Sana (Louise Portal) decides to leave her daughter and her country, Lebanon. She immigrates to Canada where she wants to forget her roots and her past. Yet, 15 years later, when her daughter ( Renée Thomas) finds her, this reunion releases repressed feelings: guilt, suffering, bitterness and an unexpected nostalgia.
Beyond the mother-daughter relationship, this story offers a reflection on the sole and exclusive role assigned to a woman within the Middle-Eastern society, the one of a mother.
