I started the new year Chasing Freedom. That is, I rented a movie called by that name featuring Juliette Lewis and Layla Alizada. Inspired by a true story, it is about a lawyer [Lewis] "who takes on the pro-bono case of a woman seeking her freedom in America. After barely escaping the unspeakable horrors of her Taliban controlled homeland. Meena arrives in the United States only to have her freedom stripped away again. Now she must convince her lawyer and herself that she is worth fighting for and face the toughest battle of her life. If she fails, she will be returned to Afghanistan and face certain death."

This movie may be of interest to those who are concerned about immigration law and protecting our own freedoms. The films flaws are minor compared to what any thinking person can gain from watching it.
