    “What is the one thing you wish was not forbidden?” Aiesha posts the controversial question in a closed Facebook group for her burka-wearing peers. Aiesha, who is nicknamed among her peers as the “fair-eyed haori”, meets her friend Sally at the mall shortly after the post. She hides more than her body and face under her burka; and during the seemingly ordinary shopping trip, she discovers that what she hates most about her life is right over her eyes.
