Summary In this documentary, three 10-year old children leave their native countries to participate in one of the Islamic world's most famous competitions, a test of memory and recitation known as The International Holy Koran Competition. As the competition reaches its climax, Koran by heart offers a compelling and nuanced glimpse into some of the pressures faced by the next generation of Muslims
