Three girls of different ages, living in different places; Cairo the capital of Egypt and Sohag in Upper Egypt. They feel alienated and detached from the place they are in and the society. They are in a continuous process of soul-searching, while living in closed communities with strict customs and traditions against the women. Throughout the film they are trying to break through the barriers forced upon them by a male dominated society, rejecting prejudice traditions that make them and many others submissive.
