Daughters of Abdul-Rahman (Banat Abdul-Rahman)
Zainab, an aging spinster and seamstress, is stuck minding her father, who is becoming senile. One day, he goes missing, so she calls her three estranged sisters to help her find him. Their reunion triggers old enmities and the sisters’ mutual search for their elusive father becomes a trial by fire for his daughters.
A bittersweet group portrait of four women representing different facets of Jordanian society.
