Mother and son, Muna and Fadi, are tired of the bombs and checking points of the occupied Palestine, and they decided to join their relatives in Chicago but they arrived in the US right after the nine-eleven… They are not even Muslims but, for the average American, they are just stupid Muslims or potential terrorists… The successful brother-in-law is not successful anymore, and his clients started abandoning him. Fadi, the son, is being called Osama by his “knowledgable” classmates, which are making his adaptation to a new home even harder. Despite the sadness of the plot, this movie is joyful to watch, highlighted with the positive attitude of Muna who never doubts who she really is despite all the misjudgments.
