Seconda ist 32, Tänzerin, und lebt bei ihren Eltern. Diese sind sehr um sie besorgt, denn die junge Frau leidet an Agoraphobie: sie fürchtet sich vor offenen Räumen, verlässt das Haus schon lange nicht mehr. Als die Mutter stirbt und der Vater abhaut, ändert sich Secondas Leben schlagartig. Allein und lebensuntüchtig, ist sie jetzt gezwungen, sich den eigenen Dämonen zu stellen. Sie wagt sich auf die Strassen ihrer Stadt. Im blauen Anzug strotzt die Anti-Super-Heldin den Widrigkeiten ihrer Phobie, um sie schliesslich zu überwinden.

Aïcha, Johan and the couple Lo Manto have taken a step in their lives that has disturbed many people around them. They have made the Muslim creed. This is the beginning of their transformation and reorientation. Aïcha moves from the rural province to the big city and euphorically follows the strict rules of her new religion. The Lo Mantos try to assert themselves against prejudices in their surroundings. And Johan? He wears a beard and flirts with his role as a devout Muslim. Or is filmmaker David Vogel just imagining it? What role does his own Jewish past play? The longer he accompanies his protagonists, the more he feels that he cannot ignore his own biography. His religious past catches up with those he thought he had left far behind.
