An American Family is an intensely personal story about the nature of true patriotism and what it's like to risk everything you know for the promise of a 226-year-old piece of parchment. As Khizr Khan traces his remarkable journey - from humble beginnings on a poultry farm in Pakistan to obtaining a degree from Harvard Law School and raising a family in America - he shows what it means to leave the limitations of one's country behind for the best values and promises of another.

What a treat to hear this thru the voice of the arthur . A true tale of surviving against all odds. No challenge would break him! It is a most beautiful love story. At the end it is a motivating call to all Americans who never went homeless or hungry to call the US home.
