Quote:
"Flush with the rush of love, Sabah must now choose between her family and her new boyfriend. [...] Without pushing the issue into absolute black and white values, director and writer Nadda takes a decidedly feminine approach and finds the valuable space between the rock and the hard place. It's called compromise, and in this context, it takes on very female properties as Sabah, her mother and her niece find a way to soften the all-or-nothing approach of the men around them."
