Synopsis

Of the several hysterical responses our government implemented after the
attacks of 9/11, one was Attorney General John Ashcroft’s decision to register all
people from 25 predominately Muslim countries, without any individual risk
assessment. By following a handful of families whose lives were permanently
disrupted by the Special Registration campaign, filmmaker Martina Radwan
shines a fascinating light on a dark spot in our history.
