An American Mosque is an intimate portrait of American Muslim farmers and their effort to build a house of worship in California. For the first time, the film tells of the unprecedented crime that destroyed their mosque. Despite the tragedy, the farmers are unrelenting in their dream for a religious sanctuary. This ultimately hopeful film is a cautionary tale showing the consequences of intolerance.
