A young female doctor (Mila Alzahrani) who, more or less accidentally, finds herself running for office in the municipal elections
‘Al Mansour’s new film offers a frequently compelling glimpse of how workaday people are negotiating such radical systemic change… This is nothing if not a movie of its time, and it sings—sometimes literally—whenever it hones in on the unique struggle through which Saudi Arabian women might seize upon this historic moment… The result is a movie as brave and humble as its heroine, one that gently threads the needle between a realistic today and a better tomorrow.’—David Ehrlich, IndieWire
