When Summer's mother converts to Islam, the carefree life the 17-year-old had been living heading into senior year is thrown into upheaval. At first resistant to her mother's newfound faith, Summer slowly warms up to the notion, trying to integrate these new beliefs into her previous Instagram-based existence, all in an attempt to suss out her true identity. A winning portrait of female self-empowerment and religious tolerance, Jinn is anchored by the endlessly charismatic performance from newcomer Zoe Renee.
