In a cotton-farming village in Sudan, 15-year-old Nafisa lives a simple life, picking cotton with her friends, crushing on a village boy, and learning from her grandmother Al-Sit, the respected village matriarch. The arrival of Nadir, a young Sudanese businessman from abroad, threatens to change their way of life. Nafisa’s parents are excited to arrange her marriage to Nadir, but Al-Sit has other plans. Because no one has asked Nafisa’s opinion about her own future, the teenager decides to take things into her own hands.
