Mariam is forced to be with her abusive husband Rasheed. He world is dark and she the Burka offers "invisibility". She can pretend that she simply does not exist and her "date" with Rasheed does not include her. Mariam also struggles with her sense of identity and the Burka helps her hide her true thoughts and feelings.
