Because of the strong influence of fundamentalist Islam on society, filming is severely restricted in Saudi Arabia. With unique access to the Kingdom, Backlight had the opportunity to film the daily routines of Saudi working women. This documentary features a top gyneacologist, a TV news anchor woman, a photographer, and a university professor. It also introduces the wealthy Prince Al-Waleed, who passionately promotes the acceptance of women into the workforce. He kindly invites Backlight to his luxury desert camp, but there are no women to be found—only thousands of men.
