Summary:
The Mosque in Morgantown presents a chronicle of life in a West Virginia Muslim community as it struggles to define itself in post-9/11 world.  The verite-style documentary features Asra Nomani, now co-director of The Pearl Project investigation at Georgetown University and a former Wall Street Journal reporter, as she pushes for change at her hometown mosque.  It also highlights the very different path to change being driven by the community's moderates.  Through engaging interviews and expertly shot pivotal moments, "The Mosque in Morgantown" deftly frames this local conflict as a lens to explore the larger dilemmas facing American Islam.
