After nearly 30 years of marriage, Joumana (Aida Sabra) is weary. The spark of excitement that lit her relationship with her husband has been lost in the details of everyday life. The play "Min al-Akhir" (Bottom Line), which was penned by and stars Sabra, strips the sanctified public performance of marriage to lay bare all the doubts, quarrels and deceptions, the unending household chores, exhaustion and frustrated aspirations that drive a wife and husband apart. "Min al-Akhir" opens with a quarrel. While preparing for a ceremony to honor her husband, Joumana is struggling to choose the right dress for the occasion. The exchange awakens Joumana to the state of her marriage, which is not as perfect as it might seem from outside. This reverie provokes a monologue on the secrets of daily married life. Worse, the husband would take a separate room, but the couple's finances make this impossible."Min al-Akhir" is a straightforward expose of the routine of loneliness and insecurity that follows the elaborate public performance of marriage, with its white dresses, tuxedos and parties.
