Reviews - What do customers think about Enfant De Sable?
not only shocking drama Feb 12, 2008
The story is not only a story about Ahmed, the eighth "daughter" of a rich merchant in Marrakech, socially a boy, but psychologically and authentically a girl. It is not only a shocking drama inspired by true events (!!!) that will leave you on the edge of your seat, but also, holds deep, implicit insights into the nature of gender and male chauvinism. The latter, although deeply ingrained in societies almost everywhere, happened to have manifested itself, in this story in particular, within North-African culture.
