This award-winning movie kicks off on a construction site in Iraq. The foreman is cutting costs by using illegal Afghan refugees, since they work harder and cheaper. After her father is taken ill, the titular young woman disguises herself as a male to take dad's place at work and earn some money. She replaces a young Iraqi as tea-maker, which causes him to hate her. However, when he discovers her secret, he falls in love. When the workers are forced to leave, he tracks her down to pursue a romance...
