Nestled in the mountains somewhere between North Africa and the Middle East, the women of one village are on strike. Fed up of trekking miles every single day to the nearest well, newly wed Leila (Leila Bekhti) leads a campaign to force the men to share the duty of bringing water to the village. Overcoming the wrath of the village elders and an unexpected visit from an old flame, Leila brings the colourful local traditions face-to-face with the modern world.
Absolutely Wonderful, gorgeous film!

This must be one of the most beautiful and rich films ever made. The directing and superb acting to a script that was intelligent and so aware of male/female real life thoughts and history fitted to a landscape and climate that too appears beautiful and yet harsh underneath. To any person remotely interested in viewing a good story or for a story based in modern day Middle East with a changing social times, this you must view; Excellente!
