During a student party, Mariam, a young Tunisian woman, meets the mysterious Youssef and leaves with him. A long night will begin, during which she’ll have to fight for her rights and her dignity. But how can justice be served when it lies on the side of her tormentors? Inspired by a true story, Ms. Ben Hania leans hard and heavy on official corruption, oppressive morality codes, and a Tunisian bureaucracy dominated by male power.

In Arabic with English subtitles. (Suitable for age 14+) 

Preceded by the short film SAYEDA.
