Nadia Zouaoui, who emigrated from Algeria to Montreal in 1988 at the age of 19, travels to her homeland to search for the tolerant version of Islam she experienced as a child but which has since been displaced by more radical forms. Among the older generation, she finds traces of that earlier interpretation of Islam, while young people express their criticism of Salafism. A nuanced discussion of a multifaceted religion.
