This dark nocturnal adventure through the streets of the Tunisian capital by rising Tunisian director Jilani Saadi, follows a group of outcasts and a young prostitute whose fates interconnect after an argument turns ugly and she is brutally raped by several of the men. A departure from more common depictions of the dispossessed in the Arab World, Tender Is The Wolf exposes the rawness, despair and alienation plaguing the lives of the poor in big cities.

Director: Jilani Saadi

Tunisia, 2006, 83 minutes
