A story that shows the realities of life very closely. The web of relationships within a family that barely makes ends meet. On top of the poverty the father subscribes to a set of values many would relate to…Values that we inherit and tightly hold on to, values that embody contradictions, values that have not been questioned.
Zainub's father's wish for a son ends up with 5 daughters and a pseudohermaphrodite, who they name Saifi. Hakim (Manzar Sehbai), her father, a herbal medicine doctor, wants to kill the child but is stopped by his wife. Saifi, disliked by his father, is home-schooled and becomes very skilled at sketching.
Zainub is hastily married off as soon as she is of age but eventually divorces her husband and returns home, where her mother still keeps getting pregnant given Hakim's desire for a son. Zainub has tubal ligation done on her mother in the absence of her father to prevent future pregnancies. Hakim, on finding out about the surgery becomes violent.
