Living in London, far from their Arab homelands, Nafie and his young wife Maliha become good friends with Doctor Nadim, a fellow exile. In the twists and turns of the friendship, the men’s nostalgia for their old lives – and their old ways of living – are in constant conflict with Maliha’s ambition to live and love freely now she’s in London. Though ready to throw off the constraints of her arranged marriage at the slightest turn, Maliha is ill-prepared for the fire of emotions that overcomes her, leading to unforeseen consequences for all three. A powerful narrative revealing how psychological suffering and cultural displacement can upset the most ordinary of aspirations for life and love.
