This film follows the everyday daily life of a young Zanzibari woman, 21-year-old Samira, who hopes to improve her lot by continuing her education, gaining a degree and becoming a primary teacher. Her plans are complicated by an expectation that she will marry soon and devote herself to motherhood.
