Cloaking its scathing commentary on the treatment of unmarried women, this comedy stars three of Egypt's biggest female stars Layla Alaoui, Alhem Chahine and Hela Sidki as a trio of 30-year-old sexually repressed bachelorettes trying to cope with their situation. One is engaged, but her betrothed is a thief who is caught on their wedding night. Another is a florist who becomes deeply depressed when her only marriage prospect wants her as a lowly second wife. The last woman lost both her virginity (a taboo in Muslim society) and her lover, who ran off to become a fundamentalist.
