15 first time female filmmakers of 9 different nationalities set out to write, direct, and edit their first short films in the conservative Islamic emirate of Qatar. Each wants hers to be selected as one of the top 3 in the Short Film Lab and win filmmaking equipment. We follow 6 teens from this cohort, young women from the Americas, Middle East, and Europe, from start to finish on making their very first short films, while living and studying in the capital city of Doha. They do not shy away from meaty topics including mental health issues, Autism and neglect.
