Nijla Mu'min grew up loving coming-of-age stories. Now, she's made her feature film debut with one of her own. The film is called Jinn and it introduces us to Summer, a 17-year-old black girl who watches her life change completely when her mother suddenly converts to Islam. It's a story about religion, family and sexuality - all things Mu'min grappled with herself growing up black and Muslim in California. She talks to guest host Ali Hassan about bringing her experience to the big screen.
