Storyline

Muna, a young Jordanian woman, as a child, was driven from her homeland to the United States because she simply could not memorize the passages in the Koran. Now she endures a hardscrabble existence as a dominatrix along with her best friend and co-conspirator Mary, an attractive but ravenous little "butch" girl who is also a creature of habit (all of the bad ones). These two women live, work and play together exactly as two women driven by a steady diet of drugs, outrageous behavior and bad decisions. It isn't long before Muna starts to hear voices. Shortly thereafter a young Muslim cab driver, Ali takes a brotherly platonic interest in her and informs her that theses voices could be Djinni's, creatures of "smokeless fire" who watch over us and try and inspire us to do the right thing.

This is one of those movies that if you don't get emo over it, you're not feeling it
2 November 2015 | by sanjsrikSee all my reviews

It may be "groundbreaking" because it has a Muslim dominatrix, and? That's the one-trick pony for this entire thing. It has a Muslim dominatrix. Honestly, that's it. Because it's too difficult for the Muslim faith to understand sexuality in any context outside of itself and like most religions will condemn and harm what it never will understand, let's make a movie to make sure that the religion is tweaked that little bit more. It's an art movie, it's disjointed, has very little in terms of plot, doesn't really say much other than to constantly show shock images after shock images probably just to get a rise out of the fundamentalists. And? That's it folks. It just really isn't that good a movie outside of the shock factor. And, if you're not a devout Muslim, it won't shock you. If you are a devout Muslim, you're only watching it to be outraged.
