When the rules don’t fit find the courage to follow your own. After a fight with her friendly boy neighbour Abdullah (Abdullrahman Al Gohani), whom she should not be playing with, Wadjda (Waad Mohammed) sees a beautiful green bicycle. Owning this would allow her to gain revenge over Abdullah in a forthcoming bicycle race. However she is living in a society that sees bicycles as being dangerous to a girl’s virtue and future prospects.
