A Muslim cop in Chicago is forced to question where his loyalties truly lie when his orthodox, estranged father unexpectedly visits from Pakistan.
An insightful and moving portrait of three generations of a Muslim-American family, I’ll Meet You There follows Majeed, a Chicago policeman, and his teenage daughter Dua, a gifted ballet dancer. Their blissful life begins to take a turn after an unexpected visit from Baba, Majeed’s long-estranged, religious father from Pakistan, which coincides with Majeed’s new undercover assignment with the FBI. As Baba and Dua’s relationship begins to blossom, she is soon forced to pirouette between her passion for dance and her roots.
