Different Sand



Amira and Linda live day-in-day out in their dingy North-London flat, whilst trying to match the needs of their Algerian father. Career driven Amira prays five times a day, takes care of the house and pays the bills, whilst Linda is busy partying and pulling pints at the local pub. When Amira decides it’s time for her to get married, the sisters battle over what’s going to happen next, and who they really are.

This modern family drama discusses what it means to come from two cultures and, ultimately, what it means to be sisters.
