Sabah is a smart, beautiful Canadian Muslim woman. Just turning 40, her natural independence and passion have been dulled by 20 years of devotion to her loving but intense family, ruled with an iron hand by her brother. Then she has a crazy idea: as a treat to herself, she buys a bathing suit and goes swimming. When her towel is accidentally stolen, she meets Stephen, who is tall, handsome, sympathetic and definitely not Muslim. Their mutual attraction flowers and Sabah finds herself sneaking around like a teenager. Eventually, she will have to confront her relatives: can she rely on their love? A tale on the theme of racial and religious intolerance.
