The first domestic trailer for Wadjda has been released, and the charms of Mohammed are immediately apparent. She plays the titular character, a young girl who loves riding bicycles and making mixtapes, things that are generally frowned upon for girls in the culture she's growing up in. When she desires to buy a new bike for herself, but finding no help in getting the money for it, she comes up with a plan to raise the money by winning a competition reciting the Qu'ran.
The trailer suggests a sweet and simple story, but given the conditions women live under in the country it has the potential to be quite powerful, and we see a touch of that in a storyline involving Wadjda's mother, who fears her husband will take a second wife. Wadjda opens on September 13th.
