Synopsis

A young violinist is set to perform, however she is barred from entering the venue as she lacks the formal cultural attire worn by Islamic women. At the reception, while waiting to borrow a garment, she witnesses other women in the same situation amidst several moments of tension. The film addresses in a short time how culture makes itself present in everyday life, and how it can be castrating while at the same time establish a fertile ground for relations of complicity. (M.
