When 16 year old Amal decides to wear hijab to high school, she has to fend off questions not only from non Muslims but also from her more liberal Muslim friends. Notable for its portrayal of varied Muslim families, from conservative to liberal.
When Amal, a 16-year-old Australian-Muslim-Palestinian (which as she puts it, "means I was born an Aussie and whacked with some seriously confusing identity hyphens") decides to start wearing the hijab, she wonders who will support her and who won't.
