Tunis, November 2019. A group of women is gathered at Saïda the hairdresser’s on the eve of the presidential election. The salon, where the women talk, laugh and argue openly, turns into more of a public square, holding up a mirror to the unrest within the country. In this female sanctuary, we gain an intimate insight into the country’s young democracy.
