Trigger Warning

Fatima lives on her own with two daughters to support: 15-year old Souad, a teenager in revolt, and 18-year old Nesrine, who is starting medical school. Fatima speaks French poorly and is constantly frustrated by her daily interactions with her daughters. While they are her pride and joy, they are also a source of worry. To ensure the best possible future for them, she works odd hours as a cleaning lady. One day, she falls in the staircase. On sick leave, Fatima begins to write to her daughters in Arabic what she has never been able to express in French.
