The New Generation Queens is the story of Zanzibar's women's soccer team. On an island where religion bars women from playing soccer, the Queens’s very existence resists cultural norms and complicates assumptions about Islam and gender identity. When the girls qualify for a tournament on the mainland of Tanzania, they have the chance to leave the island for the first time and compete in front of scouts for Tanzania national team. Though forced to go home early after losing their first three games, the team returns to Zanzibar determined to share their pastime with others and to spread the message that you can be a woman, a Muslim and a soccer player.

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
