About I My Msulim
Carla, a 62-year-old woman from the north of Amsterdam, converts to Islam for Fouad, a 33-year-old Libyan freedom fighter. Carla, with her Amsterdam’s no-nonsense attitude, breaks through the tension that is present within the Islam and Muslims. The young Fouad laughs about his unconventional wife, but also struggles with her opinionated behavior.
