A student of classical belly dancing and poetry, young Dunia (Turk) dreams of becoming a professional dancer. At a contest Dunia remains motionless while reciting Arabian poetry, an act designed to symbolise the restraints placed upon femininity in her society. Dunia stuns the jury and is introduced to an intellectual and activist, eager to support her thesis on ecstasy in Sufi love poetry.
