How does society deal with differences?

Miriam Khenissi


My entry expresses rejection of being slightly different or out of the norm than other people. I have personally experienced things since I am dual national and don’t 100% relate to either of my countries because people always look at me as an outsider and being different in each country. I think it’s important to see that sometimes people can be cruel and very closed minded by not accepting differences.


A pregnant woman watching television inadvertently passes on a birthmark to her unborn daughter, resulting in stigma later in life. Exploring Tunisian mythology and themes of rejection the film asks what if, in an alternative universe, “difference” was actually ideal?
