Mitra is an ambitious artist in her forties who embarks on her dream
project of making a film about the legendary Egyptian singer and diva
Oum Kulthum. Her film explores the struggles, sacrifices and the
price of Oum Kulthum’s success as a female artist in a male dominated
society. However, having left her family behind for her career and in
her efforts to capture the essence of Oum Kulthum as a myth, a woman
and an artist, Mitra’s own struggles blend with those of the singer and
she finds herself caught in an emotional and artistic breakdown.
