Summer is a carefree 17-year old black girl whose world is turned upside down when her mother, Jade, abruptly converts to Islam. Jade becomes a different person, prompting Summer to reevaluate her identity. While Summer initially resists Islam, she eventually becomes drawn to its teachings. However, Summer's need to be free and untethered to any one way of being clashes with her mother's strict interpretation of the faith and causes a growing rift between them. What's more, Summer’s new faith is tested by a burgeoning romance with a fellow Muslim classmate, Tahir.
