Thanks to a strict Muslim upbringing that largely shielded him from the outside world, Tariq's first year of college proves transformative. That is, until the 9/11 terrorist attacks invite growing suspicion and distrust from his angry classmates.
This movie is basically about a over-religious father (played by Roger Guenveur Smith) tearing his family apart.It mostly focuses on the father/son relationship(played by Evan Ross) and his journey in college after living with his crazy father when his parents divorced.
Due to his upbringing(such as living in a all muslim boarding house)He has become ashamed of his religion,and he's has grown to hate Islam,and he is learning how to deal with all the things going on around him.I have to say even though the production values leaves a lot more to be desired it a solid movie.
it had a good path, and good message. the acting fell down in some places(except on the part of Ross, and Long), and that was one of its faults. Other than that, it went well, and i enjoyed it overall. The 2nd half takes most of the cake.
