Storyline

Paralleling real life events experienced by co-writer/director, Nabil Abou-Harb, the short film, "Arab in America", offers a comical view on America's newest black sheep: Arabs. 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. Written by Nabil Abou-Harb
