THE POETESS

The inspirational and uplifting story of Hissa Hilal, a Saudi Arabian housewife who entered a high-profile poetry competition on TV, ‘Million’s Poet’. Facing down a barrage of predominantly male rivals, self-taught poet Hissa not only makes it through to the finals, but declaims a poem of female empowerment and emancipation.
