Amreeka chronicles the adventures of Muna, a single mother who
leaves the West Bank with Fadi, her teenage son, with dreams of an
exciting future in the promised land of small town Illinois. In
America, as her son navigates high school hallways the way he used
to move through military checkpoints, the indomitable Muna
scrambles together a new life cooking up falafel burgers as well as
hamburgers at the local White Castle. Told with heartfelt humor by
writer-director Cherien Dabis in her feature film debut, Amreeka is
a universal journey into the lives of a family of immigrants and
first-generation teenagers caught between their heritage and the
new world in which they now live and the bittersweet search for a
place to call home.
