"What does it mean to be young and Muslim in today's America? 'Abraham's children' takes us into the lives of 10 Muslim American adolescents, ranging in age from 10 to 17 years old, to share in their experiences and hear their stories in their own words. ... [The film] introduces us to 10 young men and women and their families. All but one are first generation Muslim Americans. The exception is Kasem (17), who emigrated from Yemen four years ago. ... Whether at school, at home or socializing with friends, we see [the young people] constantly challenging stereotypes; we hear about their hopes and fears, their efforts to maintain a balance between their parents' culture and traditions and their own modern 'American' lifestyle; as well as the difficulty of not having positive Muslim role models in America. In short, they are grappling with their identity and place in the world, much like every other young adult in this country."--Container.
