Khader El-Yateem, an Arab American Lutheran Pastor, originally from Palestine, and Linda Sarsour, controversial Muslim activist, came together in the wake of President Trump anti-Muslim, anti-Arab ban. They could no longer remain silent. Reverend El-Yateem ran for public office as the first Arab American to ever run for NYC Council Seat. Estimated at 40,000, the Muslim-majority Arab population in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, rallied behind their socialist Pastor. The documentary follows the drama of his candidacy.
