Fatima, a confident and successfully integrated young Muslim woman, and her best friends choose to wear the head scarf, the hijab, calling themselves “jabbers”. But then Fatima’s parents make her change schools. Now she is the only “jabber” and an outsider – just like Jorah, the hot-headed class troublemaker. A tentative love story begins to take shape between the two teenagers, but meets with a lot of opposition. As challenging as their differences may be, for Fatima and Jorah they are by no means insurmountable.
