Aminah first seeks the advice of a local imam named Youseff. The imam tells Aminah to keep her headscarf on. Youseff tells Aminah her friends will drop out on account of the ban. The imam suggests Aminah leave school and find a private tutor. Aminah tries a compromise by wearing a beret instead. The school rejects it. The imam and Aminah's father confront the school. Despite a meeting with the school principal nothing can be done about the ban on headscarves. Until Aminah decides to take matters into her own hands leading to the film's shocking conclusion.
