Jebel Banat (Girl's Mountain)


Going against long-standing taboos in a dyed-in-the-wool conservative Bedouin society, two bold and daring young women flee their home escaping forced marriages. They embark on a journey in the desert of South Sinai where they will make a life-or-death decision that will change the future of Bedouin women forever! A retelling of a melancholic 19th-century Egyptian legend about two Bedouin sisters escaping forced marriages.
