Sabah is the typical heroine, who accepts the stability and flatness of her life without any complaints. However, when she meets Stephan, the man of her life, everything changes. The scene of their meeting is quite unpredictable, which contradicts the way of life of the main heroine. Stephan and Sabah meet at the public swimming pool. Stephan is a Canadian, who does not correspond to any Muslim description of a man. This meeting gradually changes Sabah’s image of an ideal Muslim woman. The more she communicates with Stephan the opener she becomes. Sabah changes her regular style into a more casual one, taking from Stephan the features of the Western spirit. Her clothes become an opener as well as her character. Stephan and Sabah fell in love with each other. The thing is that this love greatly contradicts the religious customs of her family. Sabah faces the choice between her family and the beloved person. This choice is quite typical for Muslim women because they are born with restricted rights, which greatly differs from the Western opportunities for women to choose their partners and build their fate in the way they want it. Sabah’s brother represents the culminating image of the story.
