A movie about self-determination and responsibilities, about prejudices, the Arabic parallel society in Germany, about trust and fears – and a strong love. Maria's and Salim's relationship is determined by a delicate balance. They live in Berlin; Maria works as a belly dancer; Salim's origins are in Syria and thus in a society which perceives belly dancing as dishonourable. While he waits for her, at night, in his car, Maria dances in the clubs for other men.
