Armand and Leila, students at Science Po, are a couple. They plan to leave for New York for an end of studies internship at the United Nations. When Mahmoud, Leila’s older brother, returns from a long stay in Yemen that radically transformed him, he opposes his sister’s relationship and decides to step in. In order to see Leila again, who now lives with Mahoud, Armand has no choice but to don a full veil and deceive her guardian. A certain Scheherazade rings at his door one day and does not leave him unmoved.
