AUSTRALIA / Comedy
‘Halal Gurls’ offers a candid look at three young Hijabis living their best lives in Australia, as they navigate the culture clash between faith and desire. Mouna is a workaholic hijabi constantly caught between two worlds – her structured career-driven life and her chaotic personal life.
To succeed, Mouna must learn to navigate an overbearing mother, a pushy fiancée, a social-media-addicted sister, gossiping packs of Hijabis, and a ‘racist’ workplace – a seemingly impossible task.
Luckily, being a tough Muslim girl in Australia, she knows a thing or two about resilience and tackles this cross-cultural balancing act head on.
