Summary: Jinan al-Ubaidy, a devout Shia Muslim and an influential member of Iraq's parliament, is calling for Sharia-based government--and, as her opponents say, for a return to the subordination of women to men. Abir al-Sahlani opposes Jinan al-Ubaidy. Abir returns to Iraq after years in exile to set up a secular political party. Jinan al-Ubaidy and Abir al-Sahlani are featured as this film tracks over four years the tragic conflict of ideologies in which women--targeted by extremists for not wearing hijab, for working outside the home, for driving a car, for having an education--are being killed.
