“So very close to my real life story …yes it was painful. And well depicted in such short bits, I was in awe of this story unfolding so intensively, with depth into the characters in such brief episodes. I would say more… If you contacted me privately. I must commend you on portraying the conflicts in the three lives we have pulling most of us in different directions religion, family and society. Thank you for sharing your talent in this most insightful episodically film.”
“I watched all three episodes and I’m loving it , I’m hooked . Everyone is doing a great job.This is so real things I can really relate to being a B’more native. I LOVE IT!”
“You’ve introduced a whole world of characters very quickly and efficiently. There is this giant web of relationships–so many different people connected in many complex ways. We have never seen Muslims and especially Blackamerican Muslims like this before. Not just one or two token or magical negroes but a whole community. And community that we are judging on its own–not comparing it to the white majority. I almost felt like I was reading the beginning of a Faulkner novel where he takes us inside some tiny American town where in a small population you get scores of interlocking relationships. This was good, natural, not forced or overwritten. I am excited to see, like in a Toni Morrison novel, what happens when white people or others from the larger society get introduced into the mix, how it shakes things up. Great stuff, all around.
Did I also say how I LOVE THE FEMALE CHARACTERS. You get ghetto-blasting hoodrats, shy good girls, and wise matriarchs–and every woman is human, complex and not just a stereotype.”
“I am enjoying this show more and more. I now look forward to monday to see each new episode. I know it a web series but I wish the episodes were longer. Besides that I have no complaints. As a muslim who grew up in the inner city I can relate to his struggle between the two worlds. What is crazy is right before episode 3 I was saying to myself how much i appreciate his sister and he needs that kind of support. Then episode 3 happens and just ruins my day haha. Keep up great work!”
“Can somebody say, “Shots fired! Shots fired!” I’m loving this series, however, y’all making it hard for a sister to wait for the next one. I literally was waiting at the edge of my seat because it was so gripping. Great job!”

“This was very good high quality work, Best thing I’ve seen in the city in a while!”
“Episode 2 left on an epic cliffhanger. Episode 3 is not to be missed. Also, by adding the twist that Jamal’s brother is an ex ‘gangster’ it hooks the audience even further into the film. The soundtracks are getting better and better every episode. Can’t wait ’till the next episode. Well done.”
