Stranger Says:

When her mother, a well-known TV meteorologist, publicly converts to Islam, 17-year-old Summer’s life is thrown into chaos in ways both superficial and profound. This film’s budgetary restrictions soon become invisible thanks to especially strong performances by Zoe Renee and Simone Missick (whom you may recognize from the Luke Cage series), whose mother-daughter dynamic feels rich, complex, and lived-in—their love is a given, but they’re both going through a chrysalis process that makes the other fear that she might not be as necessary as she used to be. The supporting cast is equally strong, making the film’s tumultuous world a pleasure to inhabit.
