"True American is one of the most thought provoking, unpredictable, and moving stories I have ever read."
-Guile Branco, CEO, Bright Knight Entertainment
In 1979, seven-year-old Christopher Stewart lived with his Christian fundamentalist family in Iowa. Thousands of miles away in Kabul, Afghanistan, seven-year-old Zahir Nabi lived a comfortable life with his fundamentalist Muslim family. When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, both of the boy's lives were set on a new course.
As the communist army invaded, Zahir was forced to flee from his home. His family began a new life, in a strange city-a city straight from the action movies he watched in the Kabul cinema-Las Vegas, Nevada.
Meanwhile, Christopher and his mom, Yvette, leave Iowa with a church group intent on converting the sinners in Las Vegas.
Years later, Christopher and Zahir are thrust into the turmoil of war-ravaged Afghanistan after 9/11. The two must choose between the peace of finding forgiveness and the closure of justice.
