On the edge of a cratered road, a cortège-like procession of women
solemnly makes its way towards the village cemetery.

Takla, Amale, Yvonne, Afaf and Saydeh stoically brave the
oppressive midday heat, clutching photographic effigies of their
beloved menfolk, lost to a futile, protracted and distant war. Some
of the women are veiled, others bear wooden crosses, but all are
clad in black and united by a sense of shared grief.

As they arrive at the cemetery gates, the procession divides into
two congregations; one Muslim, the other Christian. Set against the
backdrop of a war-torn country, WHERE DO WE GO NOW? tells the
heart-warming tale of a group of women’s determination to protect
their isolated, mine-encircled community from the pervasive and
divisive outside forces that threaten to destroy it from within.
United by a common cause, the women’s unwavering friendship
transcends, against all the odds, the religious fault lines which
crisscross their society and they hatch some extraordinarily
inventive and often comical plans, in order to distract the village’s
menfolk and defuse any sign of inter-religious tension.

A series of chaotic incidents tests the women’s ingenuity as they
manage, with sass, to successfully stave off the fall-out from the
distant war. But when events take a tragic turn, just how far will the
women go in order to prevent bloodshed and turmoil?
