From My Window, Without a Home

DE MA FENETRE, SANS MAISON... (From My Window, Without a Home)
Unable to live the life imposed upon her, that of a traditional mother, Sana (Louise Portal), a Lebanese, leaves her four-year-old daughter with her mother and emigrates to Montreal. Choosing to be a woman before a mother, she escapes the self-sacrifice inherent to Middle Eastern women. In her new life, Sana can live in harmony with her own nature, needs and desires. This brings on a deep guilt, which leads Sana to want to cut all ties with her past. Seventeen years later, on impulse, Sana invites her daughter, Dounia (Renee Thomas), to Montreal. This encounter reignites the suffering she has tried to forget and brings forth the immoral sacrifice necessary for her own survival. For Dounia, her first contact with the Western world will enable her to understand the reasons behind her mother's departure, and to question her own existence.
