Three Arab women looking for freedom living in France are trying to get a better life. Aida, an Egyptian divorced painter, is attempting to fulfill her artistic ambitions. Amal a lebanease Journalist who suffers from her massochism, in escaping from war. And Soad, fleeing poverty from Morroco, who works in a shop & lives with the old & impotent owner.
