Logline: 

Two young hijabi adults, Rida and Jamila attend a party. After the party, Rida discusses her decision to not wear a hijab all the time. Rida then makes a decision about whether to tell her parents that she no longer wears her hijab.

Director's Statement

This film is based off of many Muslim women experiences. I wanted to represent a topic that is seen as taboo to talk about, but it is quite common Muslim women to go through a hijab journey as well as doing activities that they would consider a sin. It is a heavy subject to grapple with. There are double standards for muslim women whose religion is apparent through wearing their hijabs. I hope telling this story through Rida's perspectives begins these dialogues for Muslim women.
