Mother of the Unborn

The absolute truth lies in the notions of life and death. Fertility indeed is the miracle of creation. But does it answer the question of happiness, or is it just an illusion?

In a forgotten corner of Egypt lives a woman who is yearning for a child. Having no option but to live on the fringe of her community because of her infertility, Hanan lingers between a dream that is slowly slipping away and her struggle to find a place where she belongs. While everything that surrounds her bustles with fertility and mortality, she wonders how to give meaning to the time that she has in between.
