Yearning to leave behind his life of misfortune in the Middle East, Ibrahim Jarrah wins the U.S Green Card Lottery for a chance to become an American citizen. Ibrahim lands in New York City the day before 9/11... and the events of the September terrorist attacks forever shape the struggles he faces on his journey to capture the American dream. Inspired by true events, filmmaker Sam Kadi's feature debut is a gripping tale of courage, love, and perseverance, the qualities of a true CITIZEN. Written by

Just your run-of-the-mill, feel-good, do-good Hollywood presentation where everybody is such an incredibly good Samaritan and the only bad guys are the psychopaths running the US government (only when a Republican is President though, otherwise they all become good Samaritans too, get Nobel prizes, etc.)
Such simplistic movies distorting the truth are bad enough when they are made by Americans who can be seen as entitled to criticize their own government, however blatantly wrong they may be, but it leaves a sour taste in the mouth coming from a Syrian director...
P.S. The European intelligentsia will love this movie! I am surprised it didn't win the Golden Palm in Cannes...
