On a hot summer's day in Gaza, Christine’s beauty salon is buzzing with clients: a bride-to-be, a pregnant lady, a bitter divorcée, a devout woman and a pill-popping addict. Gunfire erupts outside, as a bunch of thugs steal the lioness from Gaza’s only zoo, and Hamas seizes the opportunity to settle old scores. Stuck in the salon, fearing for their lives, the women start to unravel - their helplessness a reflection of an ongoing struggle in a region that has forgotten about them.
