Little Mosque on the Prairie is a comedy from CBC Television about a small Muslim community in the prairie town of Mercy, many of whose residents are wary of their new, more "exotic" neighbors. The series takes an unabashedly funny look at the congregation of a rural mosque and their attempt to live in harmony with the often skeptical, even downright suspicious, residents of their little town. The sitcom reveals that, although different, we are all surprisingly similar when it comes to family, love, the generation gap and our attempts to balance our secular and religious lives.
Runtime: 30 minutes
