Virgin Diaries / Reise einer Jungfrau
It all began with a controversial kiss of the hand… Fatiha, a young Moroccan woman, is on the verge of marrying the man her grandfather chose for her. Her fiancé’s disturbingly extreme views, however, cause her to embark on a journey through Morocco in search of answers to her questions about virginity, sex and Islam. Inevitably, this defiant quest that Fatiha undertakes with her close friend (the filmmaker) produces few answers and lots of trouble. Things skid definitively out of control when Fatiha does the unthinkable and falls in love for the very first time. Fatiha’s random (or predestined?) encounter with a charming stranger suddenly pits duty against desire.
