Medea is a woman from the East, a queen in exile. Burqa has become a part of her skin. Just before she gets arrested for her crimes, she is ready to say goodbye to her mythical self. In this interpretation of the myth, Medea is making a symbolic journey from the ancient times to the present. This Eastern woman falls in love and gets married to a Western prince, the Greek Jason. Two different religions, two cultures, two disparate worlds clash in a story of betrayal, a story about being a foreigner in an unfriendly country, a story about being a woman in a world run by men.
