    • Synopsis
    • Yusef , a Pakistani American engineering student, moves off-campus with a group of Muslim punks in Buffalo, New York. His new “un-orthodox” housemates soon introduce him to Taqwacore-- a hardcore, Muslim punk rock scene that only exists out west.
      As the seasons change, Taqwacore influences the house more and more. Ultimately, Yusef is influenced by Taqwacore too, as he begins to challenge his own faith and ideologies.
      The Taqwacores deals with the complexities of being young and Muslim in modern-day America.
