Directed by Fatema Chebchoub, a Moroccan living and studying in Philadelphia, this film addresses issues of democracy, identity, patriotism, and the reality of being an Arab-American in a post-9/11 American environment. Spanning a number of generations, ethnic and religious backgrounds, and social positions, the film gives voice to the complex and varied experiences of this diverse community who have come to make America and Philadelphia their home.
