After 9/11, Nefise Özkal Lorentzen, a Turkish-Norwegian filmmaker, decided to make a trilogy about progressive Islam. Her intention was not to defend or explain Islam, but rather to show the different sub-cultures within and various interpretations of Islam.
As a child, Nefise sent balloon letters to Allah, looking for answers to all her questions. Still searching, she sets out to unravel the mysteries surrounding women in Islam.
