Three women living in a downtown Algeria hotel struggle with the encroaching restrictions of fundamentalist Islam as the religion places increasingly strict barriers between the town's citizens and modern society. Facing radical changes in their world, the young photographer, former cabaret singer, and prostitute find themselves virtual prisoners in their own homeland. Lubna Azabal, Biyouna, and Nadia Kaci star. 113 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: French DTS stereo; Subtitles: English; bonus short "Yashmak" (2002). In French with English subtitles.
