USA Vs Al-Arian- The Story of an Arab-American Family

USA Vs Al-Arian is a close portrait of an Arab-American family facing terrorism charges leveled by the U.S. Government. In February 2003, the FBI arrested university professor and political activist Sami Al-Arian in Tampa, Florida. Charged with supporting terrorism, he was placed in solitary confinement for 2 1/2 years before he received a trial. The film follows Sami, his wife Nahla and their five children through the 6 month long trial and the difficult period after the verdict.
