Fahri, a dedicated Indonesian student of the Koran in Cairo, is busy translating religious books when his family prods him to think of marriage. But Fahri, who’s never been close to a woman outside his family, has his world turned upside-down when he meets four beautiful women: a shy Coptic-Christian woman interested in Islam, the Muslim daughter of a renowned Indonesian cleric, an Egyptian neighbor and a hauntingly beautiful German-Turkish exchange student. The film – a love story set in a religious context, adapted from Habiburrahman El Shirazy’s eponymous novel – was a popular hit in Indonesia, breaking all box office records!
