Salaam Dunk follows the members of the women’s basketball team at the American University of Iraq as they discover what it means to be students, athletes, friends, and women in a predominantly Islamic society. A story of triumph in the face of chaos, this candid documentary tells the story of a diverse team — composed of Muslims, Christians, Kurds, and an American coach—to tell how sports can uncover shared values and create communities of understanding.
