Dowaha (a.k.a. Buried Secrets) is a Tunisian film. This psychological thriller was directed by Raja Amari in 2009.


Aicha, Radia and their mother live removed from the world in the servant’s quarters in a wing of a deserted mansion. The precarious balance of their daily life is shaken by the arrival of a young couple who move into the main house. A bizarre cohabitation develops between the couple and the three women who decide not to make their presence known to their unexpected neighbors. They cannot leave their hiding place as it conceals secrets buried for years. However, Aicha, the younger of the two sisters, feels drawn by the newcomers...
