Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Her world is very conservative, based on traditional values. However, the fun-loving, boundary-pushing young girl doesn’t let that stop her.
After getting in a fight with a neighborhood boy—whom she should not have been playing with in the first place—Wadjda spots a beautiful green bike for sale. Her mother refuses to buy her the bike because their culture sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl's virtue. Wadjda does not take "no" for an answer and decides to try and raise the money to purchase the bike on her own.
