The film provides insight into Shari'a law, an often misunderstood legal framework for Muslims, told through the eyes of the first woman judge to be appointed to the Middle East's religious courts. Her challenges are both personal and political as she comes up against influential Arabic customs and Islamic religious traditions that defer to men.
