Synopsis by Jack Rodgers
A young Tunisian woman (Baya Medhaffar) rebels against her society's repressive mores by playing in a politically charged rock band. As the country's 2011 revolution draws closer, she must deal with pressure from her mom (Ghalia Benali) to buckle down and focus on going to medical school, as well as the threat of running afoul of authorities. As I Open My Eyes marks the feature directorial debut of Leyla Bouzid.
