The screening of the film will be followed by Q&A discussion with film director Noor Bader. Running time is 44 Minutes, 2023. Arabic with English subtitles.

A new documentary sheds light on the challenging realities faced by eight Palestinian women battling breast cancer in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. These women's narratives are not merely posed as medical cases but intricate tapestries woven with threads of societal and political oppression that shape their experiences.

The focus of the documentary delves into the web of oppressions encompassing Israeli colonization, the Palestinian healthcare system, and deeply entrenched social constructs surrounding femininity that intertwine with the women's struggles against breast cancer.
