Description

Jeddah, 1974. The honeymoon is over. In fact, it has been over for some five years now. But the lingering nostalgia for that lost romance in Cairo is the only thing that helps Dina, a Saudi housewife, survive the day-to-day blankness of her marriage. When the chance to relive those first days appears, Dina is consumed by a passionate dedication to organize and execute a remake of that first getaway, only to find herself on a different, even more emotionally challenging journey.
