Old Saida is called when there are weddings to enhance the beauty of brides with henna, massage and make up on their wedding day. But Miriam is not a girl like the others and refuses Saida's treatment. Even if hers is not an arrange wedding, Miriam is afraid and does not feel ready to take this step. The feelings of the young woman bring back to Saida the memories of her youth and the drama of a marriage to a man who was twice her age. Between the two women arises a strong feeling of solidarity.

Directed by Raja Amari, Tunisia, 2001, short drama, 23mins

La vieille Saida est appelée à l'occasion des mariages pour exalter avec le henné, les massages, le maquillage la beauté des mariés le jour de leurs noces. Mais Miriam n'est pas une femme comme les autres, elle refuse le traitement de Saida. Même si son mariage n'est pas un de ceux arrangés, Miriam a peur, elle ne se sent pas le courage de franchir le pas. Les sentiments de la jeune femme font que Saida voit affleurer de nouveau les souvenirs de sa propre jeunesse, le drame d'un mariage avec un homme qui avait le double de son âge. Entre les deux femmes naît un fort sentiment de solidarité.
