Aicha, Radia and their mother live removed from the world, in the underground servant's quarters of a deserted mansion. The precarious balance of their daily life is shaken by the arrival of a young modern couple who move into the main house. A dark, subterranean fairy tale set in a contemporary Tunisian context, this award winning film explores the effects of reclusion on the female psyche, as well as the repressed desires that come as a result. Tunisia / Switzerland, 2009, 90 min, Drama, Arabic with English subtitles, Raja Amari, dir
