Four days after the 9/11 attacks, Balbir Singh Sodhi was gunned down at his Phoenix area gas station by a man named Frank Roque. To Roque, Balbir Sodhi's beard and turban-articles of his Sikh faith-symbolized the face of America's new enemy. Seeking retaliation for 9/11, Roque killed Sodhi and went on to shoot at a Lebanese American man and fire multiple rounds of ammunition outside an Afghan American family's home.

A DREAM IN DOUBT follows Rana Singh Sodhi, Balbir's brother, as he attempts to fight the hate threatening his family and community. But less than a year after Balbir's murder, Sukhpal Sodhi, Rana's next-eldest brother, is killed in mysterious circumstances while driving a cab in San Francisco.

Wanting justice for his brothers' murders, Rana is motivated towards social action. He demands that America live up to its ideals of freedom, equality and justice for all. In A DREAM IN DOUBT, he challenges his fellow citizens to think deeply about individual responsibility in the face of bigotry and what it means to be a true patriot.

A Dream in Doubt is a co-production of TRY Productions and the Independent Television Service (ITVS), in association with the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
