Aisha begins life as a Portuguese peasant, moving to Paris to seek out a less stifling existence as the nanny for a bourgeois couple. However, when Aisha's brother Jose, newly arrived in Paris, kills himself as a protest against the cruelty of the modern world, her life falls apart. In desperation, she journeys to Morocco to find the sheikh who brought Jose to Islam.
