Frida is taking her friend to an Egyptian fast food place in NYC. At the restaurant, she witnesses a white guy sexually harassing a latin girl. She confronts the guy and tries to help the girl, but no one is confirming what she says. The latin girl escapes the scene when she hears that the police are coming. Farida catches up to the girl outside only to be shocked by the fact that not everyone has the luxury of protecting themselves.
