"On a Wing and A Prayer" is an intimate, funny family feature that takes its viewers into the sky with Monem Salam as he follows his American Dream of obtaining a pilot license even as he draws the attention of the FBI.

The film carries viewers deep into the life of the Salam family in the small town of Bellingham, Washington, not only shattering stereotypes about Muslim Americans, but also by sharing their unique personal narratives.

Monem Salam, a financial advisor, attempts to follow the footsteps of his father, a successful commercial airline pilot.
