Summary
Saudi Arabia is where Islam’s heart beats. But for gay Muslim filmmaker Parvez Sharma, the country presents two serious challenges: filming is forbidden in the country, and homosexuality is punishable by death. For Sharma, however, these were risks he has to assume as he embarks on his Hajj pilgrimage, a journey every able-bodied Muslim is commanded by Allah to go on at least once in a lifetime. So equipped with nothing more than an iPhone, two smuggled, tiny cameras, and his faith, Sharma audaciously enters the holiest city that has been closed to non-Muslims for 14 centuries
