Arcola co-founder Leyla Nazli adapts Ece Temelkuran's bestselling novel: an epic tale of empowerment and adventure.
Three women meet by chance in a Tunis hotel in the first months of the Arab Spring.
Striving for freedom and acceptance, but harbouring secrets of their own, they embark on a fantastical journey to Lebanon with the mysterious Madam Lilla.
Against a backdrop of social, political and religious uncertainty, the women begin to trust each other and a newfound unity grows.
But can they surrender themselves fully as they travel deeper into the desert and belief in their enigmatic guide begins to waver?
A revolutionary road trip and love story, Women Who Blow on Knots is a refreshing and darkly comic exploration of sisterhood and belonging in the Middle East.
Ece Temelkuran is a Turkish journalist and political commentator, and author of How to Lose a Country: The 7 Steps from Democracy to Dictatorship.
