Director Statement

I was living in Montreal when the terrorist attacks occurred on September 11th, 2001.

Shortly afterward a car in my neighbourhood was vandalized in the manner depicted in the film. Far from being an isolated incident, it was one of many acts of violence directed towards anyone living in the West who could conceivably have been of Middle Eastern origin.

The question I asked myself when I sat down to address the incident was, what happened next? How did the victim respond? How would I have responded?

The result is this film.

My eternal thanks goes out to everyone listed in the film's credits. The film wouldn’t be what it is had it not been for their involvement.
