Three women with distinct personalities must put their differences aside and work together in order to survive, after a death in the family unravels their lives.
Salma is a talented baker living alone in a large old house overlooking downtown Amman in Jordan and her daughter Farah is a young working mother with marital problems.
Their lives are disrupted by the death of Salma’s ex-husband, which forces them to take in a new housemate, his current wife Lamia, an aspiring socialite who is obsessed with building her brand online. After the funeral, shocking facts come to light leading to territorial clashes which force the three women to accept some harsh realities and take control of their lives.
