Phaim, a young Muslim of Bangladeshi origin born in Italy 22 years ago, lives with his family in Rome’s multiethnic Torpignattara neighborhood. He works as a museum steward, and plays in a band. At a concert, he meets Asia, his exact opposite: pure instinct, and no rules. The attraction between them is immediate, and Phaim will have to figure out how to reconcile his love for the young woman with the most inviolable of Islam’s rules: no sex before marriage.

Join us for our live Q/A on October 11th at 11am PDT with screenwriter Vanessa Picciarelli.

In Italian with English subtitles.
