Dunya and Desie both live in Holland but they belong to two different cultures. Dunya belongs to a Moroccan family that does not appreciate her friendship with Desie, a Dutch girl with an all-too-liberal attitude. The two girls will have to face up to two events about to affect their lives forever. Dunya must go to Morocco. Her parents have decided that she will marry a distant cousin. Desie discovers she is pregnant and must make a decision. In the meantime, she travels to Africa to meet her friend. The journey will help clarify her future.
