Blind since childhood, Youssef has a devoted wife, loving daughter, and successful university
career, but his affliction fills him with secret torment. As if in answer to his prayers, a Paris clinic
restores his sight - a miracle that is double-edged. Although this new world of sight and color
floods Youssef with ecstasy, it also plunges him into a labyrinth of confusions and temptations. A
pretty student begins to eclipse his dowdy, previously invisible wife. In one disturbing scene, he
silently watches a subway pickpocket, who fixes him with a look of withering complicity. Eager to
claim the lost life he feels he is owed but unable to take the next step, Youssef is inflamed with
possibility and paralyzed with egoism. From the director of The Children Of Heaven, The Color Of Paradise and Baran.
