Germany/Jordan 2019
Dir.: Daniela König
Aishe, Khawla and Rehab are ladies who have come to make a change. They repair leakages, clean water tanks and show house-wives how to handle water properly – in Jordan, one of the driest countries on earth. Aishe, after losing her husband, was trained by self-assigned first female plumber of Jordan, Khawla Al-Sheikh, in order to be able to solely provide for her three children. They have been working together in Khawla’s NGO for female plumbers since, and they have become close friends. As Aishe’s 40th birthday is approaching, she shares her dreams of self-realization with Khawla who encourages her to set a goal and go for it. Khawla herself seemingly accomplished everything – until she has to stand trial due to corruption allegations. The reputation of the plumbers organization is suffering as well as Aishe’s and Khawla’s friendship. Aishe is still determined to earn her living with plumbing. She drums up her own business by taking on jobs in her village and slowly becoming independent. When Khawla needs Aishe to testify for her in court, Aishe is not sure what to do – be loyal to her best friend or focus on her own business? (90 min., Arab., Eng. & Heb. subt.)
