Young doctor Maryam’s only desire is for the dirt road outside the local hospital to be surfaced but no one takes her seriously. So, despite the fact that she isn’t supposed to run for office, or show her face in campaign videos, or directly address male voters in conservative Saudi Arabia, she decides to run for a seat on the municipal council…. A powerful film by the director of beloved Wadjda (the first feature made by a woman director in the country).
