“This admirably mordant film deserves to travel widely”

Variety

Sofia’s unexpected pregnancy comes as a surprise to everyone including Sofia herself. But for a young woman out of wedlock, it also requires urgent action: a father’s letter is needed to deliver the baby. Sofia quietly leads her family to an unmarked blue door on the other side of town, where a certain Omar is indignant, as confused as anyone by the assertion that he has to take responsibility for the child. In sharpest focus here is class ñ dividing responses, inviting unexpected solidarity, underlining the ever sliding scale of women’s rights. Benm’Barek’s accomplished first feature debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Best Screenplay Award.
