Ali Kemal and Berfin are a couple living an ordinary life while waiting for their wedding day. After a surprise visit from an unknown woman to Ali Kemal’s shop, they find themselves awaiting a magical metamorphosis that will lead to Ali Kemal’s sex change. Bold realities of feminist issues, the role of women in traditional Turkish and Kurdish societies, and the ways in which the government deals with them surround the couple as they try to figure out if they can make this change on a personal level as well. Hidden salutes the cross dressing scene from the famous Kurdish folk tale Mem û Zîn, where Mem is dressed as a woman and Zîn as a man when they see each other for the first time.
