Raghead

Raghead tells the story of Omar, an 11-year old Arab boy living in New York three months after the 9/11 attacks. Omar has been living with his grandmother since his father was deployed overseas by the American Military. Each day, he is bullied at school by other kids who discriminate against him based on his ethnicity. Omar is conflicted about the value of his Arab heritage and isn’t sure whether he should wear his ‘thawb’ for Heritage Day, the school’s largest event of the year. As Raghead unfolds, Omar finds a way to solve his internal conflict.
