Nadia (Zakia Tahiri Gomperiz) is a wealthy Moroccan girl who returns to the bedside of her dying father after spending a wild time in Paris. She has easily adapted to many western ways and sports red and blue dyed hair and a short black dress. When Nadia attends the funeral of her late Westernized father, the holy Islamic chants awaken her to a new spirituality. She adapts to traditional Islamic garb and turns part of the family mansion into a women's shelter. Nadia also meets a young man who shares in her newfound interest in Islamic values but tolerates her liberated views of valuing and helping oppressed women.
