SynopsisDuring an international youth exchange for young dancers in Israel, the lives of two young women convene: Hiba (17), from Sheikh Dannoon, a Muslim village located in Israel, meets Laura (18), from Berlin. Girl's Wings searches for moments of freedom and finds them: when the young girls float across the dance floor, when they stand together under a waterfall, or when the complexities of the world bring forth tears.
What exactly does 'freedom' mean to Laura and Hiba? The film raises this question and documents two ways of dealing with one's own freedom. Girl's Wings aspires to cast doubt upon the prevailing image that young people from religious Muslin families must be viewed per se as 'unfree' while young people growing up in the Western world are 'free'.
