Gender War In Egypt: A Film About Women Who Fight Back

Scheherazade, Tell Me A Story

In today's Cairo, Hebba, a television talk-show host, produces a successful political talk show on a privately owned network. Her husband, Karim, is the deputy editor-in-chief of a government-owned newspaper. When his promotion is threatened by his wife's meddling in opposition politics on her program, he sweet-talks her into avoiding controversy and devoting her program to other topics. She begins a series of shows about women's issues, revealing the stories of strong, resilient women who, like Scheherazade in One Thousand and One Nights, tell their tales to stay alive.
