The Virgin Diaries

Fatiha, a young Moroccan woman, is soon to be married to the man her grandfather chose for her. But the extreme opinions of her soon-to-be-husband worry her. To get an answer on her questions regarding her chastity, sex and the Islam she starts a journey through Morocco. The journey that Fatiha and her good friend (the filmmaker) take so resolute, results inevitable into a lot of sorrow and hardly any answers. Things really take a turn when something unbelievable happens: for the first time in her life, Fatiha falls in love. Because of the coincidental (or destined..?) meeting with a charming stranger, a battle between duty and desire starts for Fatiha....
