Barbara Wally, the former director of the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg, has been a public figure known for her pronounced feminist views for decades. A few years before her retirement she fell in love with Alkhadher, a 20 years younger driver from Yemen. She has since become his second wife and a devoted Muslim, which entails praying to Allah five times a day, and wearing a headscarf on many occasions. The film explores this unusual paradigm shift.
