The film takes place in a hammam in Algiers, when it is open only to women. Inside the hammam, full of water vapor and safety, women, from girls to beautiful girls and from women of bio-wrestling to plump grandmothers, take off their clothes and their headscarves and between laughter, tears and outbursts of anger talk about: weddings, certificates of virginity, mothers, bombs, the Bible, the Qur'an ... before the flash of a dagger and the silence of God. The excellent cinematography of Olympia Mytilinaiou and the poetic immediacy of the female temperament compose a laxative appeal for action.

Rayhana Obermeyer is a French actress of Algerian descent and an award-winning playwright. Her first film, Ι still hide to smoke , was based on her own play of the same name. Much of the film was shot at Bey Hammam in Thessaloniki.

Olympia Mytilinaiou is a renowned and awarded cinematographer, based in Athens. Born and raised in Northern Greece, at the foot of Mount Olympus, from an early age she developed a passion and understanding for natural light. After working as a camera assistant in cinema for several years, she began her career as a cinematographer in 1999. Since then, she has made many feature and short films, documentaries, TV commercials, corporate and music videos, video art and more. Most of her film productions have premiered at many acclaimed film festivals around the world.
