Summary East London Mosque is one of the largest in Europe - over a quarter of a million people walk through its doors during the month of Ramadan, and up to 7,000 fill its walls for Friday prayers. But for most people outside, it's a place of mystery. Having documented radical Islam in My Brother the Islamist and My Brother the Terrorist, filmmaker Robb Leech now asks what it's like to be an ordinary Muslim living in the West. He follows the everyday lives of the people in the community, experiencing their faith at first hand.
