Please be seated. Mr. Winston, you may cross-examine the witness.
Good morning. Prior to your arrival in 2001, had you made any other visits to this country?
Did your duties as an auto mechanic in any way necessitate relocation to the United States?
Sorry, would you please repeat the question.
What brought you to this country? Why are you here?

An immigrant from Lebanon arrives here on September 10th, 2001. You can imagine what happens to him; pretty much everything you can think of.
I wanted to like this movie, but it was too much of a cliché for me. Nothing unexpected happened; the bad guys were all bad, the good guys were all good, the Lebanese immigrant didn't make a wrong step. If only life were like that.
Despite everything bad happening to him, he rises above it all and is determined to live the American dream. Nothing gets him down.
Nevertheless, I did watch the whole thing which was rare for something I had never heard of before, and I enjoyed it. It was a feel-good movie, which I also enjoyed. Sometimes I, or anyone, needs some of that.
