It tells of an 11-year-old Riyadh girl, Wadjda, who longs for a bicycle so that she can race one of her friends, a neighborhood boy. But bike riding by girls is frowned upon in her country. So when Wadjda's mother refuses to buy the bicycle, the determined moppet sets out to see what she can do by herself. This film has a 99% "fresh" rating on RottenTomatoes.com. Subtitles.
