America Reframed

Adama

Season 4, Episode 4 of 26

In March 2005, Adama Bah a 16-year-old Muslim girl growing up in Harlem was detained by the FBI after she was accused of being a potential suicide bomber. Although no evidence was ever produced to support the claim, Adama had to wear an ankle bracelet and live under partial house arrest after she was released from detention. As Adama nervously awaits the outcome of a pending deportation order, the film follows the efforts of a Muslim activist, an ex-FBI agent, and Adama's 10-year-old brother as they each attempt to unravel the web of post-9/11 politics surrounding her arrest and the potential collapse of her family and future.
