Still image from Edge Of Islam

Part of the "Life on the Edge" series. On the beautiful island of Lamu on the eastern coast of Kenya, 18-year-old Adbulkarim faces a dilemma that will decide his future. He has just graduated top of his class from school, but cannot get hold of the exam certificates he needs for university until he pays his hefty school fees arrears. He earns $1 a day selling vegetables in the market, but he could earn several times that by finding work in Lamu's booming tourist industry. Trouble is, as a devout Muslim, he worries that tourism has introduced alcoholism, drugs, and soaring house prices that are threatening the local Islamic culture. What will he decide? Meet him and two other Muslim students who also face a choice between their faith and their future. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
