'Just A Prayer' follows Anita, a Muslim woman who seems to have everything, but who is deeply dissatisfied with her life and the path she sees ahead of her. In making a major decision that she believes will bring her happiness and opportunity, she discovers only unexpected regret and loss. Anita eventually finds solace through a Catholic group, and a few years later, we find her living in a convent as a novitiate. The film is grounded in the present, but flows between her life now as a novice and the events of five years ago that have lead her here.
