About:
A personal investigation of FBI surveillance of a Muslim American community.

Journalist Assia Boundaoui grew up in suburban Bridgeview IL in a close-knit Muslim American community. Before 9/11, members of the community suspected they were being monitored. Boundaoui sets out to investigate whether there was truth to this paranoia, and, despite resistance from neighbors and friends to talk, in the process uncovers the existence of Operation Vulgar Betrayal, a counter-terrorism surveillance program. Facing roadblocks that require Freedom of Information Act requests and disturbing conversations with the FBI, Boundaoui perseveres, even if the full picture remains frustratingly out of reach.
