One of the toughest things in the world would have to be leaving a country that you call home to go & live in a land totally foreign to you. A land where your prior accomplishments & experience are reduced to nothing. In addition to being away from home you are outcasted because of where you are from. Constantly ridiculed & through all of this the importance of culture & heritage is prevalent.

Amreeka. A great film of a Palestinian mother & son who come to America to live with family. The film goes through the mother & son's struggle to adapt as well as how they are treated by Americans. It's a film I highly recommend to watch.
