Dearborn, MI has been thrown into conflict incorporating fear, ideology, and identity politics. Home to the largest Arab-American population in the United States, it is a place of apparent contradictions: simultaneously a sleepy affluent suburb and the subject of rumors around ISIS terror cells and sharia law. This film takes us into the lives of five very different citizens who have been caught in the crossfire, from Muslims to Christians, who all consider themselves Americans. As they grapple with questions of religion, race and class, do these separate communities have more in common than they realize?
