Summary
"Nadia, a young Moroccan émigré, returns from Paris to Fez to visit her dying father. At his funeral, she is moved by the voice of Karina chanting the Koran. A powerful friendship developes between the two women as Nadia decides to turn her father's place into a Muslim women's shelter. A Sufi tale told in a metaphoric lanaguage, A door to the sky was one of the first films from North Africa that addressed the social and economic changes as proposed by a spiritual Muslim woman on a quest to preserve her cultural and religious identity"--Disc case
