1930s Bahrain, oil has just been discovered in the Middle East and Andrew MacInnis from Canada has come to work here. He visits a Bahraini carpet merchant, who does not speak English. The merchant calls for his daughter, Noor, to act as interpreter. She is a devout Muslim and must not expose her face to men outside of her immediate family. However, the first time, she comes rushing in to the room with her face uncovered. For Noor and Andrew it's love at first sight.
While she acts as interpreter and under her father's watchful eye, the two plan to elope.
Do they escape? Will Noor have the nerve to follow Andrew's plan or will centuries of a formidable culture and Noor's upbringing prevent these two young lovers from following their hearts?
