The Egyptian straight-A-student Souad is eager to play the dutiful daughter in her conservative family. But simultaneously she lives in a parallel universe on SoMe, where she has a boyfriend, and where she goes on virtual dates. But the freedom in Souad’s secret online life is tainted when she starts losing control over the white lies she’s told her family – and herself. Former documentarist Ayten Amin handles the many layers of this story with suspense and a keen eye for the bare realities. Also when the story shifts dramatically, and Souad's 13-year-old sister is sent out on a quest to gather all the threads of her sister’s story.
