    Michael returns home to Chicago from Operation Iraqi Freedom with more scars than he left with.

Now, that his bloody Tour of Duty is over, he returns home to find his mother, Teresa, dead by her own hand, pushed to the brink by her abusive husband Roman. Michael vows to take vengeance for his poor mother by killing Roman. But he must have one last day with his girlfriend, Rose, a recent high school graduate who stayed loyal to Michael during his tour. But this happy reunion of young lovers takes a turn for the worst when Michael begins to show abusive behaviors toward Rose, not unlike his father's behaviors as a child. Michael must choose to let his past go and leave his father to rot in his own hell of self torture, or join him by his side.

  3. Al Qarem

    Al Qarem

    The film itself focuses on an Afghani family living in Queens, before and after the historical catastrophe. Federal agents abduct a friend of this family investigating money transfers to an uncle in Afghanistan during the reign of the Taliban. The son makes it his mission in life to release him. This situation is intensified by having to watch out for hate crimes carried out by angry commoners as a false sense of retaliatory attack for 9/11. What makes this setting all the more wild is that events depicted have been interpolated from a true story. The motion picture thus analyzes the effectiveness of profiling when it comes to terrorism, the validity of the "enemy combatant" claim when denying right to trial, and other pressing moral issues that will continue to be debated long after the now global conflict subsides.

    Lost among the violent tides of World War II and the cold, barren landscapes of an Italian winter, an American Sniper struggles to keep his soul intact. Endlessly he murders German soldiers from afar and this begins to breakdown the unsteady walls of his sanity. A new victim is placed before him. Yet instead of killing this particular German soldier, who is guarding a nameless road somewhere in Italy, he endeavors to watch the unsuspecting soldier through the scope on his rifle. This action brings about an epiphany which slowly begins to heal the Sniper's damaged soul. The realization that the enemy is human. Volker is the German soldier that the Sniper watches from a far. Volker's antics, displayed vividly and uninhibitedly by the certainty of his solitude, convey a message to the Sniper among the trees. The German soldier's childish behavior, innocence and constant acknowledgment of the cold weather amuse the Sniper, even provoking him to laughter at moments, something the Sniper has not known for quite some time. And then it dawns upon him. Volker is in fact, retarded. This realization influences the Sniper to begin a relationship with the German soldier. He slowly lets the German know of his presence until finally he decides to actually approach him and befriend the simpleton. The precarious nature of such an action takes the Sniper up the road to redemption only to lead him into the dark confines of an unstable and potentially fatal situation.
