Plot summary[edit]

Three Veils is about three young Middle-Eastern women living in the U.S, each with their own personal story. Leila (Mercedes Masöhn) is engaged to be married, however as the wedding night approaches, she becomes less and less sure. Amira (Angela Zahra) is a devout Muslim, but is dealing with her deep repressed lesbian feelings. Nikki (Sheetal Sheth) is acting out her promiscuity as she battles her own demons after a tragic death in the family. As the film progresses, all three stories unfold and blend into each other as connections are revealed between the three women.
