In an era where the Western media has painted Muslims in an increasingly fundamentalist and dogmatic light, Filmmaker Simon Broughton offers a compelling look at Sufism - the mystical component to Islam that preaches the virtues of peace, tolerance, and pluralism while encouraging music as a means of strengthening one's relationship with God. By traveling to various areas of the Islamic world including Syria, Turkey, Pakistan, and Morocco, Broughton not only examines the growing threat from fundamentalist Islam, but allows an alternative view of the religion by speaking with some of the best Sufi musicians on the planet.
