You can come in.

- The party is raging.

- What did you expect?

- Did you bring the dress?

- Yes! Show me.

Look at this.

This only happens to me.

Here, take this.


What's wrong with you?

You got me a nightgown to wear!

- Come on, it's beautiful!

- Are you kidding?

Looks like my mum's!

Look at my dress!

And you get me this?

Just try it and let me see!

OK, I'll do it for you.

What am I doing...

You see how it goes?

Wait. Let's see.

This is really tricky.


- You're choking me.

- And you're destroying my dress.

I'm not going out like this!

Not in public.

It's really nice.


You'll pay for this later.

- Stick your leg out.

- Don't make me fall.

- Look what I got you.

- Show me.


I knew you'd like it.


Thank you!

Come on, we're late.

- This is a dress for a fashion model.

- Eat a bit less and you'll be one!

My purse,

my Phone...


- Mariouma! You're so beautiful!

- Hey, how are you?

- Nice dress.

- Thank you!

Thrift shop as usual?

Are you hearing this Najla?

I can't get my fringe right.

Mine took three hours to do.

Come on, girls, let's have a selfie.

- What's that whistling?

- My phone.

It's my father.

- Didn't you save his number?

- I know it by heart.

- Answer him.

- You hear the music outside?

He's gonna show up again.

No, I asked my mother to call me

as soon as he's on his way to Tunis.

Come on!

OK, it's fine.

Very nice.

- Let me put it on Facebook.

- No Facebook, please.

- I'll send it to you but no Facebook!

- You're friends with your father?

Let me have some fun, OK?

"Friends with your father"...

Ha, ha, very funny!

- Come on, she really likes you.

- Yeah, sure!

There he is.


- Come on, push the subscriptions.

- I'm on it!

- Where do we put the bags?

- In the cloakroom.

Did you see the guy?

Just there.

No, I didn't.

At the entrance, with the bouncer.

The bouncer is on his own.

I'll show him to you later.

Everybody paid? No freeloaders?

No worries as long as I am here.

- Do you want to go over the cash?

- We'll do it tomorrow.

Najla, I've been looking for this.

- It won't match the dress.

- I'll put it around my hips.

Don't you have a scarf

to go crazy dancing?

Come on!

Water, please.

He's over there.

He's cute.

. Subscriptions are now open

for just fifty dinars!

If you want to join,

come and see our treasurer...

Where is Mariam?

Let's thank the beautiful Mariam

who organized this evening.

Ladies staying in dorms,

enjoy yourselves and have fun,

and don't worry about a thing,

we've chartered a bus

that will take you home

before the dorms close their doors.

So, without further ado,

here's DJ Fatarya

for a belly dancing set!

Everybody on the dance floor!


- Look!

- Yes, she's talking to him.

She does that whenever I like someone.

- Go see her.

- OK, give me my bag.

- Is he still there?

- No, he's gone.

Who's that guy you were talking to?

- Why do you want to know?

- Just asking.

- Oh, just asking?

- Yes!

Tell me!

Come with me.

- Please, Amani...

- Come on!

- Do you want a cigarette?

- I don't smoke.

Can you get the door for me?

Don't worry, they're gone.

Come with me, don't be frightened.



Come on, Mariam.

You need to see a doctor.


Hi, welcome.

Can I help you?

She needs to see a doctor.

Can I see her ID?

Sorry, but I said her ID.

I am sorry but she lost her papers.

What's wrong with her?

She's been raped

and we need a document to prove it.

Please help us.

Hey you!

Where do you think you're going?
