A revealing documentary, which gains unprecedented access to the Shari'a courts to chronicle the rise of Kholoud Al-Faqih, who became the first woman judge to be appointed to uphold Islamic law. The film traces Al-Faqih's professional journey from an idealistic young lawyer to the highest office in the Middle East, the resistance to change from Palestine's Chief Justice, and her tireless fight for the rights of women.
