Following the travels of Osama Ahmed Abou-Bakr, the audience will experience heightened instances of discrimination, racism, prejudice, and down-right ignorance. With a barrage of colorful characters like illegal Mexican landscapers, wrongfully imprisoned African Americans, southern good-old-boys, the NSA, the INS, the TSA, and the Police Department, Sam has his work cut out for him, if he hopes to be accepted as an Arab in America.
