Instead, she spends twenty-five years in a loveless marriage. After she escapes her husband, she embarks on an adventure which takes her from joining a revolution, to the slums of Cairo where she gets involved with a fundamentalist sect. She will survive riots, change her name and go into hiding. Along her journey, she meets a lawyer who helps her escape and a young man who leads her to her father. In the end, when she comes face-to-face with the man from the photograph, she realizes that throughout her journey she has found what is more important: her own voice.
