Najmia, “Little Star”, is a thirteen-year-old girl with a radiant smile and frank eyes. In the old city of Saana in Yemen, everyone knows her. With her curled hair opened in the sun, lively Najmia defies centuries of ancestral traditions. Carefree and insolent, she does not wear any veil.

Director Khadidja Al-Salami could not believe her eyes when she met her. Neither can we.

Khadidja Al-Salami's previous film Women in Yemen was in competition in Vesoul International Film Festival of Asian Cinemas (VIFFAC) 2005.
