”The revolution took away the fear. We learned we can change things if we want to.” This was Nada Ahmed’s experience of the revolution that deposed Mubarak in 2011 and that’s when she decided to make her old dream come true: work with children’s theatre. The country is paralyzed by political turmoil, caught between the old traditions and modernization. Nada’s religious family is not happy with her being nearly thirty and unmarried. When Nada finally finds love and feels ready to marry she is confronted with the question: will she be free to engineer her own life within that institution?”
