Very moving family drama, with a very powerful message, one that leaves an impression long after it has finished.
— The Open Door Showcase

When two teen sisters discover that their family holiday abroad is really a plan by their parents to deliver them both into forced marriages, the girls flee home to find their own ways of remaining in Edinburgh, testing the limits of their bond and the resolve of the adults who control their futures.

Starring Hiftu Quasem, Hannah Ord, Maryam Hamidi, and Amir Rahimzadeh
