Phaim is a young muslim of Bangladeshi origins. At 22, he lives with his family in Torpignattara, multiethnic neighborhood of Rome. He works as a stewart in a museum and is the leader of a music band. During a concert in which he's supposed to play, Phaim meets Asia, a girl that is his exact opposite: pure instinct, no rules. Between the two a sudden attraction occurs and Phaim will need to understand how to reconcile his love for this girl with the most unbreakable rule of Islam: no sex before the wedding night. The film depicts an accurate image of a multi-ethnic Rome and Italy today: home to a wide range of diaspora of many different community groups contributing with their own special cultures to the cosmopolitanism of the eternal city.
