really liked it

A short yet dense drama following the fate of a group of individuals circulating around a wealthy family in a rapidly modernising Oman. The rapid erosion of the old way of life, the conflict between values and beliefs, plays out in a narrative that slips between past and present and a troupe of perspectives, all the while shedding a little more light on the rumours and mythology that have build up around relationships and events.
