SYNOPSIS

18-year-old Algiers student Nedjma (Lyna Khoudri) is passionate about fashion design. Spirited and independent, she refuses to let the war keep her from experiencing a normal life and going out at night with her friend Wassila (Shirine Boutella). When new bans are imposed by the Islamic radicals fighting the government, she rejects them, instead putting on a fashion show. But in a city rife with violence and fear, Nedjima is making a dangerously public bid for freedom.
