Imane loves her husband, her children and Oum Kalsoum. Music haunts her life and all her emotions. All day long, she keeps humming and singing Oum Kalsoum's songs, to the great delight of her family. Her husband absorbed by his double job as civil servant and taxi driver, supports his wife's new passion. However, Imane is Syrian and therefore to men's point of view, she can only be respectable by her silence. Rather than facing such disgrace, her family decides to murder her…

M. Malas drew his inspiration form a news item published by a Syrian daily in 2001.

"The film aims to perform an autopsy on this crime, but also on the city of Alep which is famous for its history and for its inhabitants' deep fondness for song and music. It also wants to show how songs have become a crime punished by a death sentence". Mohamad Malas
