A story about headscarf and women who wear it.

Following the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City, one piece of clothing gained a scandalous reputation around the world: the headscarf. All over the world, a major debate is taking place about whether Muslim women should be allowed to wear the headscarf in public. Meanwhile, young women in post-communist, post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina are increasingly embracing the wearing of the hijab as a symbol of freedom of religion and conviction, and sometimes as an act of rebellion against the capitalist vision of female liberation. Undercovered is a film about these women.
