Excellent documentary exploring aspects of a difficult and complex subject.

This documentary explores the conflict between deeply-held and most strenuously practiced religion and visceral dissonance and how to solve conflicts and evolve faith practices. I had expected a stereotyped treatment of a complex subject, but found the author and crew transcending the stereotypes compassionately.
