Wadjda

Ten-year-old Wadjda’s friend Abdullah has a bicycle, which represents to her the freedom that only boys have in the gender-conscious society of Saudi Arabia. She makes and sells bracelets and runs errands to earn money to buy one, sometimes getting in trouble with her school principal. Hoping to win prize money, she enters a contest that tests knowledge about the Quran and the ability to recite the sacred text.
