Wadjda is the story of a young girl living in a suburb of Riyadh determined to raise enough money to buy a bike in a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl's virtue. This groundbreaking feature is the first shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first by a female Saudi filmmaker. It offers a welcome alternative female role model and a moving, rarely seen picture of everyday life in Riyadh.
