A year before the legalization of cinema in Saudi Arabia, a predominantly female team attempt to make a feature film. In the spirit of debut films, someone documents the production using his first 8mm video camera left over from childhood. Working underground, he collects anonymous accounts and brings them together to form a melancholy narration. Screens before Faire sortir les figurants.
