The film is an exploration of the diversity of Muslims in America today, focusing on communities’ experience after 9/11 and contrasting life for Muslims in the United States with those in Britain and Europe. Produced in conjunction with The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer — including NewsHour correspondents Ray Suarez, Judy Woodruff, Spencer Michels and Fred de Sam Lazaro, and with an opening and closing by Robert MacNeil — the film looks at the ongoing conversation American Muslims are having about life in the United States, including assimilation, discrimination, Muslim youth, religion and politics.
