Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
For many Americans, the psychic wounds inflicted by the shocking events of September 11, 2001, are still tender. For those who may still be asking themselves exactly what it was that caused the Muslim population of the world to take such an extreme stance against Western culture, and their country in particular, this insightful documentary takes a closer look at the powers that have shaped the Middle East to provide a better understanding of the troubling crisis. From the downward spiral of the economic and sociopolitical state of the region to the increasing prominence of religious fanaticism and terrorism, filmmakers attempt to get to the root of the problem by highlighting the various factors that have played into the growing destabilization of the region.
