    Mona Zaki is electrifying as Hebba Younis the controversial show host. Scheherazade Tell Me a Story is not only one of the better riches of the middle east, but also deals with sensitive subjects such as Gender Wars, delicately and effectively.

    An Egyptian feminist tale told with both affecting compassion and made-for-TV corniness.
