September 11th, 2001 shook the very core of American society. But for one religious faction, the terror attacks spawned a violent retaliation, unlike anything they had ever known.

The hate crimes prompted a young Sikh American to begin documenting the cases throughout the country, including a brutal attack in San Diego.
She turned those stories into a documentary called, 'Divided We Fall'. [Link]
