“Every night I empty my heart, but by morning it’s full again. Slow droplets of you seep in through the night’s soft caress. At dawn I overflow with thoughts of us, An aching pleasure that gives me no respite Love cannot be contained, the neat packaging of desire
Splits asunder, spilling crimson through my days Long, languishing days that are now bruised tender with yearning Spent searching for a fingerprint, a scent, a breath you left behind.”
In the upper echelons of traditional Middle Eastern society, Reema and Omar prepare for the marriage of their daughter Tala. But back at work in London, Tala encounters Leyla, a young British Indian woman who is dating Tala’s best friend Ali. Tala sees something unique in the artless, clumsy, sensitive Leyla who secretly works to become a writer. And Tala’s forthright challenges to Leyla’s beliefs begins a journey of self-awareness for Leyla. One of two movies that Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth star in, both made by Shamim Sarif. Both incredible movies that deserves your attention. Go watch it!
