Lola's secret passion is belly dancing but so far she's only been able to perform at a ratty strip club.

While delivering mail, Lola meets Zach, the handsome son of a wealthy Egyptian family who is studying in America.

Lola finds herself falling for Zach and when he's heads home she decides to follow him.

Lola becomes fascinated with Cairo and decides to stay for a while in hopes of learning belly dancing in the land where it was born.
