Layla is an 18-year-old daughter of middle class Moroccan immigrants in Amsterdam. Fed up with the discrimination she and other Muslims face on a daily basis, Layla decides to take action. Street protests and online activism are only the beginning of her unsettling journey. She joins a group of radical Muslims who fight for their practise of Islam, where she meets her future husband Abdel. Layla encounters a world that nurtures her ideas initially, but finally confronts her with an impossible choice.
