In a mosque, a young Muslim woman has just bared to Allah the fact of her broken soul. She is repulsed by her husband Aziz, with who she was placed into an arranged marriage by her father when she was sixteen. Aziz quotes Allah as he beats her in finding any reason to doubt her devotion to him. She admits that she does fantasize about being freer in her life, however they are purely fantasies as she submits wholly to Allah. She is placed into a conflicted situation internally with this submission to Allah, as she cannot tolerate what Aziz does to her in his name. Two further issues exacerbate that conflict. First, she is raped and impregnated by her paternal Uncle Hakim, her father refusing to acknowledge that his brother did anything wrong. And second, she meets Rahman solely by chance in a market, the two who have an immediate attraction. She prays to Allah for salvation and awaits his response. Written by
This documentary will be one historic document. Therefore the name Ayaan Hirsi Ali will be in history books all over the non-Muslim world. The director Theo van Gogh gave his life, left a son and a whole country. The murderer of Theo van Gogh (Mohammed Bouyeri) was caught after the murder, shooting at policemen, trying to get a martyr. Police acted professionally, arrested the fool with one shot in his leg. Submission is esthetically a beautiful filmed story about a young woman, enslaved my her religion (Islam). A must see, in these times of growing Islam-influence over the world.
Politically correct movements try to impose censorship on Ayaan Hirsi Ali to prevent her to make Submission II.
