Phaim is a young muslim of Bangladeshi origins. At 22, he lives with his family in Torpignattara, multietnical neighborhood of Rome. He works as a stewart in a museum and is the leader of a rock group. 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 it is a sudden attraction 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.
