49-year-old atheist feminist Wanda faces her worst nightmare when her teenage daughter Nina tells her that she has converted to Islam, is going to wear a scarf and should now be called Fatima.
Wanda’s world is turned upside down, revolving around one question: How do you make Nina come to her senses?
To top it all off, Wanda’s ex-husband becomes a father again, which has her wishing the old times would come back, when her only problems were her daughter ditching school and smoking pot.
Surprisingly, she finds a supporter. It’s Hanife, mother of Nina’s friend Maryam. Hanife and her parents immigrated into Austria 35 years ago in order to save her from the outdated image of women having to cover their hair.
A comedy about the search for explanations, a sense of belonging, identity, solidarity, and paradise on earth.
