Tariq reconsiders his engagement to the daughter of a prominent local judge when he goes strolling one night through the city and spots a beautiful woman dancing in the streets. But his decision to walk away from responsibility could do irreparable damage to his family's honor. Bader Ben Hirsi directs this award-winning romance -- the first feature ever to come out of Yemen -- filmed on location in the ancient city of Sana'a.
