The Afghan community in Fremont. Calif., is the largest in America. In many ways, they have had the traditional immigrant experience of arrival, adaptation, financial growth and then a move to the suburbs. But they also started as refugees, fleeing a war started by the United States' Cold War enemy. More than 20 years later, their homeland was again invaded -- this time by the United States. I tried to capture the complexities of this unique community in a short film; I hope I succeeded. And I hope you enjoy it.
