The main character (whose support got the project going, in a country where many actresses wanted nothing to do with it) is veiled, conservative, working-class mother Fayza (music superstar Bushra), whose economic situation dictates that she ride the crowded buses daily and expose herself to what men call “the lemon test:” pocket-size foreplay to test a woman’s receptivity to further molestation.

After seeing her on TV, Fayza goes to see upper-class jewellery designer Seba (Kareem), who has been roughed up sexually at a sporting event and decides to host a seminar for women who have been assaulted (though none will own up to it). The youngest, Nelly (El Seba’i), is a spirited, engaged twentysomething who aspires to be a stand-up comic, but whose life changes dramatically after she is grabbed by a man from his moving car. Nelly is based on the courageous woman who, in 2008, filed the first sexual harassment lawsuit in Egypt.
