Synopsis: Suspended Women describes the struggle of Ghita, Latifa and Saadia, three women abandoned by their husbands who, after years of interminable waiting, go to the court in their region to ask for a divorce. The court proceedings force each of them to prove the absence of their husbands: an absurd and painful obstacle course that they are not sure they can overcome.
