WHOSE CHILDREN ARE THESE? provides a gripping view into the world of three Muslim teenagers affected by post 9/11 domestic anti-terrorism security measures. One such program, ‘Special Registration,’ required male non-citizens – as young as the age of 16 and from 25 countries – to register with the U.S. government and resulted in the discriminatory deportation of many. This film introduces Navila – an honors student who fought to release her father from detention; Sarfaraz – a popular basketball player who confronts pending deportation; and Hager – a young woman who faces prejudice and is spurred into activism as a result.
