On a Wing and a Prayer: An American Muslim Learns to Fly

On a Wing and a Prayer: An American Muslim Learns to Fly is a gently funny film that follows Monem Salam as he enrolls in an open-minded flying school. Monem is the son of a Pakistani commercial pilot. The family of his wife, Iman, is Palestinian and although initially dubious about the marriage, now accepts the cultural differences. With three young children, Iman is happy to find time to cultivate her inner domestic diva. Monem’s “green” decision to commute by scooter only heightens his likability. These modern-day Americans cast off stereotypes and refuse to succumb to victimhood.
