Zayneb is on her way to Doha, Qatar, after being suspended from school because of a racist teacher. Adam is on his way home, still working through being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. They both notice each other on the plane from London, but only exchange a few words. When they meet again at a party, neither can deny their connection. However, life’s problems and some miscommunication threaten their beginning relationship. Will they overcome the distractions that get in their way?
This is a light story of young love, but it is also so much more. Zayneb’s story confronts the problem of racism while Adam’s experience faces the trials of physical disabilities. Also, their story reveals much about the culture and beliefs of Islam. Love from A to Z is a love story with a powerful social message.
