Abstract:

In 2005, a group calling itself Jam̓iyyat Ul-Islam Is-Saheech, which translates to Assembly of Authentic Islam, and shortened to JIS by law enforcement, plotted to strike U.S. military facilities, Israeli national interests and synagogues in the Los Angeles area around the Jewish high holidays. This film features the complexities of Islam in prison by tracing the men charged with 2005 alleged terrorist plot in Los Angeles and an overcrowded prison system which might become a breeding ground for homegrown terrorists.
