Synopsis

Quatre femmes issues de générations et de milieux sociaux et géographiques différents prennent la parole pour nous parler de leurs souffrances et de leur désir d’émancipation dans une société patriarcale et machiste.

___________________

In the wake of the Egyptian revolution, four women speak of their fight for the future and what it means to be a woman in Egypt. In the Shadow of a Man weaves through their worlds as they tell us their stories of marriage, divorce, love and resistance, mirroring their lives with Egyptʼs greater struggle for freedom and self-determination.
