Synopsis

For decades, Barbara Wally was known throughout Austria for her outspoken feminist views. But a few years before retiring from the International Summer Academy for Fine Arts in Salzburg, her life took a dramatic turn. During a 10-day vacation to Yemen, she fell in love with a chauffeur named Khadher and became his second wife. She went from being an atheist and a feminist to becoming a Muslim who is subservient to her husband's wishes. We observe Barbara as she runs a local travel agency with her husband called Adensafari. While her spouse spends his days slumped in his chair chewing qat or drinking tea with male relatives, Barbara can barely leave the house.
