Opposites attract in this subtle and beautifully composed sapphic romance from writer-director Shamim Sarif (I Can’t Think Straight, MGFF09).

Lisa is an aspiring singer from a conservative Christian family, while Dalia is from a successful Palestinian Muslim family and engaged to be married. After Lisa’s family lose their small farm, she begins working under Dalia at her family’s innovative “agri-farm”. While racial, religious and cultural tensions simmer, Lisa and Dalia nevertheless become close. And as the women begin to learn more about each other, they form an attraction that prompts both of them to consider what might be worth sacrificing in the journey to be themselves.

“A beautifully shot and powerfully acted film that serves as a testament to the freedom only authenticity can bring.” – The Globe & Mail
