Storyline

Xate is an ordinary woman from Midyat with eight children in tow. The only thing that sets her apart is her husband's job as Mayor of Midyat. Until, that is, an extraordinary day changes her life - and the lives of everyone else in Midyat. For the illiterate, uneducated Xate becomes Mayor of Midyat! While she takes on her mayoral duties much as she does those in her house, the infantile rivalry between her children in municipal matters leads to adventures that have the Midyat folk howling with laughter.

A feel good story
8 August 2017 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

A feel good story. Men are lazy. But they are the base of the society. In the end, the women still need a man to do their job. And they are constantly nagging, like women do. Sure, there is corruption, but there is good corruption and bad corruption. Amusing up to a point to see a variation on the usual theme of male supremacy and how some manly women can do part of the job.
