Scales is a dystopian film about a young girl who accepts her destiny when she stands alone against her family and overturns the village tradition of sacrificing female children to the mysterious creatures inhabiting the waters nearby.

The movie is the first debut feature film of Saudi Arabian writer and director Shahad Ameen and based on her award-winning short film.

Scales stars Basima Hajjar as Hayat, alongside Ashraf Barhom (Coriolanus, Clash of the Titans, The Kingdom), Yagoub Alfarhan (Ekhtraq, Bedoon Filter, Love Without Limits) and Fatima Al Taei (star of Image Nation’s courtroom drama, Justice).

Image Nation Abu Dhabi made news in February this year after its co-produced documentary, Free Solo, won the Oscar for Best Documentary.
