Three modern North African women on the brink of self-awareness discover the power of friendship. Amina, caught in an unhappy marriage and Aida, recently divorced and openly dating men (to the shock of her disapproving family and neighbors), begin to question their lives and relationships when they meet Fatiha, an Algerian refugee. On the threshold of a new life in Europe, Fatiha serves as the impetus for Amina and Aida to question their own fate.

Nouri Bouzid's Bent Familia is a moving story of unique friendships between three educated women who, although anxious to live in a modern world, are nevertheless trapped by the limitations of their society.
