Synopsis

An intimate exploration of the life of the Muslim Community in the French West Indies through the testimonies of women and men formerly Christians and now converted to Islam. After their conversion comes the questioning of their West Indian identity. They try to live their religion and spirituality in a place where Christianity is often an integral part of the local culture and where there is no real mosque. The film is totally unexpected and peaceful. Nature is very present. The narrative is built with a beautiful distance, far from the usual clichés and media stereotypes.
