Synopsis

Armand and Leila are in love. Together they plan to go to New York for an internship. But few days before their departure, Mahmoud, Leila’s big brother, comes back from his long-term stay in Yemen, during which he has changed drastically. Wanting to reframe Leila’s life, that he judges indecent, Mahmoud decides to confine his sister and stray her from her boyfriend. How can Armand free Leila? For his friends, Armand has no other choice – if he wants to sneak in Leila’s apartment – he will have to wear a niqab. The next day, a new woman in niqab walks through Paris… Her name is Shéhérazade…
