Unveiled: The Truth Behind the Myth, views the trials and tribulations of adolescent life through the lens of a Muslim girl attending high school in Toronto. At first, Sadiyya Ibrahim seems to be an unlikely representative of her student body. Cloaked from head to toe in her religious attire, she best appears to fit the stereotyped image of the shy, oppressed Muslim girl seen in the media. But, by allowing her inner voice to guide her through the vices of peer pressure and discrimination, Sadiyya silences all skeptics with with her larger than life personality - proving that heroes can come in all shapes, sizes and appearances.
