An unlikely friendship during a nation's identity crisis
CLARKSTON is the story of a Muslim refugee and a former Klansman whose only commonality is being the target of blame in a polarized America. Set to the backdrop of two towns separated by 100 miles and warring ideologies, the film uncovers what is possible when we leave the security of our tribes and what is at stake for our country if we don’t.
