The Reformist - A Female Imam

After her own divorce, Sherin openly begins granting Islamic divorces to women unhappily married and performs inter-faith marriages of Muslim women and non-Muslim men. Having sacrificed her own marriage for the cause, Sherin wants to grant Muslim women the freedom to divorce and marry. But how do you break centuries of tradition from within a religion?
On this matter the new Mosque is divided. Should they work for their ideas in the shadows or in the public glare? Should they take baby steps or dare to do whatever it takes to achieve their own vision? 
THE REFORMIST is a portrait of a fearless woman, who being the child of a Finnish mother and Syrian father, looks like no one's idea of an imam.
