Nomination Detail

In Beirut, five women meet up at a beauty salon, a highly colourful and sensual microcosm. Layale loves Rabih, but he is a married man. Nisrine is Muslim and her forthcoming wedding poses a problem: she’s no longer a virgin. Rima is tormented by her attraction to women. Jamale is refusing to grow old. Rose has sacrificed herself to look after her older sister, Lili. Between haircuts and sugar-waxing with caramel, the women at the salon share intimate and liberated conversations about men, sex and motherhood.
