Young Wadjda dreams of owning a green bicycle. But she’ll have to forget about racing a boy from the neighborhood: the law prohibits girls from riding bikes. After hearing about the prize money for a school contest in Koran recitation, Wadjda decides to earn the cash to fulfill her dream herself.

With Wadjda, Haifaa Al-Mansour—whose The Perfect Candidate was released recently—grabbed Hollywood’s attention, and became both the first woman director from Saudi Arabia, and the first filmmaker to shoot a film entirely there. Here is her heartfelt, charming, and sassy tale of female emancipation.
