Premise of the documentary:
There is a treacherous fault line creeping its way around the world marking profound distrust and animosity between Christians and Muslims of various groups. While both groups have in their histories war-making and violence, another reality exists that gets too little attention. Muslims and Christians both are dedicating their lives to the pursuit of peace and peacful relationships. In this documentary we examine the streams of peace that flow through both the Christian and Muslim worlds.
