Non-Muslims come together in this video to share their perspectives on their own deep, meaningful relationships with Muslims. They contrast the mainstream media's current portrayal of Muslims to their personal experience of having these close and intimate friendships. Along with their Muslim friends, they challenge the audience to consider what can be done to counter the narrative of fear, mistrust, and phobia. The universal message is conveyed that by simply getting to know someone, the fear that stems from a lack of understanding can be overcome. Once there is understanding, one can realize that the shared values of compassion, respect, and tolerance are universal and surpass the perceived differences between Muslims and non-Muslims that stand in the way of peace.
