Imagine how crazy things may get when you put seven exchange students, including two kids from Muslim backgrounds, into a Christian home in rural America. Literally filmed by a group of high schoolers and their community, this documentary captures the exchange students learning to live the 'American Way' as they sink their teeth into rural Oregon, and become the stars of their high school football team. A lighthearted, teen angst film that voyeuristically illustrates that adolescence is a universal experience.
Directed by Katharine Mahalic
Field Produced and Cinematography by Anuradha Rana
