With wild hair and in big leather boots is the band “Slave of Sirens” claiming the stage. Lead singer Maya grabs the microphone and screams rebellious lyrics at the raging crowd. With its uncompromising sound, Beirut's first female heavy metal band tries to smash every obstacle that stands in the way of young women in Lebanon. In this energetic documentary, we accompany the expressive female protagonists on their search for identity, sexuality and creative self-development in a country on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
