    For hundred of millions of Sufi followers worldwide, music lies at the heart of their tradition and provides a way of getting closer to God. From the Whirling Dervishes of Turkey to the qawwali music of Pakistan, Sufism has produced some of the world's most spectacular music celebrated by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. This documentary film further traces the shared roots of Christianity and Islam in the Middle East and demonstrates the ways in which Sufism forms a peaceful, tolerant and pluralistic bastion against fundamentalism throughout the world.
