Cherien Dabis Explores the Arab-American Diaspora in 'Amreeka'

3 September 2009 10:20 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

When divorced single mother Muna arrives at Chicago O’Hare International Airport from the West bank with her teenage son Fadi, she is filled with hope and optimism. Having won a Green Card through the U.S. State Department’s lottery program, Muna is happy to leave behind the noise, heat and political strife of her homeland.

When an immigration officer asks if her husband is traveling with her and her son, she replies innocently "We have divorced. My husband, he is not a good man." The comment arouses the immigration official’s suspicion and their luggage is thoroughly searched. Muna and her son are briefly separated and Fadi allows an airport custom’s officer to confiscate a Saran-wrapped tin of cookies from their baggage. Later that evening, Muna searches in vain for the tin—which contained all her life savings.  

Too proud to admit her mistake, Muna immediately tries to find work. »
