This movie depicts the struggles of an aspiring teen ballerina Adele Shakiri when she decides to don the headscarf associated with Muslims but which is not allowed under the strict attire rules of ballet. Adele grapples with the dilemma of choosing both ballet, seemingly a symbol of the liberal West but intolerant of diversity in attire, and Islam, compassionate yet unrelenting in its demand for modesty.
