In Our Son’s Name follows Phyllis and Orlando Rodriguez over more than a decade as they search for meaning and cope with grief after their son, Greg, is killed in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Their remarkable transformative journey takes them through public opposition to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, testimony for the defense at Zacarias Moussaoui’s sentencing trial, friendship with Moussaoui’s mother, work with convicted felons, and speaking out against anti-Muslim actions and the death penalty.
This intimate, one-hour documentary challenges conventional concepts of justice and healing, and reveals the potential of trauma to inspire, not defeat, the human spirit.
