Wearing a hijab is a touchstone of religious identity, but it is also imbued with a complex array of historical and contemporary meanings.
The cultural meaning of the hijab has become a wedge between generations.
At the heart of <i>Shafana and Aunt Sarrinah</i> is the relationship between an aunt and her niece.
Both devout Muslims, the younger woman wants to put on a headscarf, the older woman tries to dissuade her.
For Aunt Sarrinah, the hijab represents a world from which she has escaped; for her niece, Shafana, it is a personal statement of renewed faith.
