This video is the result of the directors' year-long collaboration with Arab American teenagers to document their lives growing up on Chicago's southwest side.

It addresses stereotypes and racism towards Arabs and Arab women, while showing what makes many Arab Americans proud of their cultural heritage. Thought provoking and insightful, this video is a complex portrayal of a Chicago community often kept invisible.
