After the death of her parents, Iman, a traditional and conservative young woman, has to take care of her younger sister, Noha. When her sibling is faced with a marriage proposal, Iman has to ask her uncles to meet the groom and his family, as customs in Arab societies require the presence of a man from the bride’s side for the marriage agreement. But Iman decides to disregard the tradition.
