Synopsis

In 12th century Cordoba, the eminent philosopher Averroes, established an important body of work. The influence of his teaching extended through the Enlightenment and is still felt today. In order to mollify the fundamentalists, the Caliph Al-Mansur orders all of Averroes' books to be burnt. Averroes' family and followers decide to make copies of his books and to smuggle them across the border. Despite the pressure put on by the fundamentalists, human knowledge prevails in its journey toward the Other, toward Progress.
