A starting point for the film is a story of Atijat and her husband Adil - a story that shows the world of dilemmas, experiences and marriage relationships in an Arabian family. After few years of living together, our heroine finds out that her husband is looking for a second wife. Reconciled with his plans and the reality she lives in, Atijat tells her story to Ania - a Polish young archeologist, the director of the film. In the background of Atijat's drama, there are numerous discussions on Sudanese ideal of beauty, the polygamy, the circumcision of girls. Both women and men talk to Ania, and introduce her into their deepest believes and convictions: the polygamy as a custom difficult for women and hilarious for men, the circumcision as a mean of becoming a real woman and achieving sexual temperance, and the way a woman and a man should co-exist in marriage. A touching picture, full of beautiful shots, focused on the things that help woman to feel fulfilled.

Will he ever seize to be amazed? The documentary by Anna Błaszczyk and Robert Kielak pictures a man full of energy and eagerness to work who keeps searching, wondering at, admiring and getting bewildered by the surrounding world with a childlike curiosity.
