A snapshot of the Egyptian spring from the point of view of two sisters. While one sees herself confronted by her own disappointments, the other has never dared to expect anything from life. In both cases, the protest of women is nipped in the bud. “Being a woman means always being sealed away in a tomb.” - this is still daily reality for many women around the world. Ka im Grab presents this reality and simultaneously calls for breaking free from these patterns of violence and repression.
