America at a Crossroads: The Mosque in Morgantown

2009 TV-PG

When former reporter Asra Nomani returns to her hometown in West Virginia to raise her son (after being abandoned by the boy's Pakistani father), she's disturbed to find that her local mosque has taken what she views as an extremist turn. She pushes against the rigid views, while mosque members push back, accusing her of careerism. Through one woman's story, this film attempts to capture the struggle at the heart of American Islam.
