Armand and Leila are in love and are planning to go to New York for an internship. But a few days before their departure, Mahmoud, Leila’s elder brother, comes back from his long-term stay in Yemen, during which he has changed drastically. Mahmoud decides to confine Leila in order to reframe her indecent lifestyle. Armand finds a way to sneak into Leila’s appartement – by pretending to be a woman in niqab by the name of Shéhérazade.
