This poetic animated short experimental film is a deep feminist take on a French literary folktale, The Bluebeard, about a powerful man who kills the curious women who want to do the forbidden. The film is centered on a story of a mother and her child who were found alive under a destroyed building. The female in The Bluebeard story is a symbol for the nation and a reflection on the Arab spring and the place of women in its developments.
