Hala Lotfy

The Stroke

Coming Forth by Day (previously titled The Stroke)


Producers: Hala Lotfy, Manal Lotfy

Production Company: Zero Production Company

Project Logline:

Those who have fully enjoyed their bodies cannot be submissive. And those who have not? Can they survive the slavery of solitude and impotent acceptance of what they cannot change or embrace? This is the everyday story of two women taking care of a sick man.

Director's Quote:

All the characters of the film are suffering from their inability to express their emotions at the moment when they most need to open up. This is a film about how we make our own prisons by accepting with great nobility a life that is anything but noble.
