On an engagement night, a denied request pushes two sisters to their edge. Salsabel, a 13-year-old Saudi girl who fights to go to the grocery shop in a city where it is socially unacceptable, experiences hardship in her relationship with her older sister Wasan, who fears the night's darkness and refuses to go. Later that day, the two sisters find a way to fulfil their desires by burning the night.
