“How do you review something you know you don't quite understand? Carefully. This is a beautiful, delicate story, steeped in Islamic history, faith and folklore. It is bittersweet, threaded with themes of love, loss and family. The storytelling is a bit convoluted, but the tone is perfectly balanced. Unfortunately, I don't know near enough about Islam to understand the significance of the events told herein, but I know a good story when I read one, and this is a fine piece indeed.”
