A young girl's life changes when her mother abruptly converts to Islam in this indie drama that won the SXSW Special Jury Award for Writing.

At first resistant to the faith, she begins to reevaluate her identity after becoming attracted to a Muslim classmate, crossing the thin line between physical desire and piety.
