Based on a true story ripped from the headlines. In Veils of Justice, a young Saudi Muslim, accused of raping and robbing at knifepoint a New York businessman, insists he is innocent. With a prosecutor determined to be the first to convict a Saudi of any crime since 9/11, Deena, his Jewish lawyer, assumes he is guilty, but deserves valid evidence and punishment, not revenge. Can Deena get a fair trial for Mazen Tamedo in NYC only a few years since the attacks by 15 Saudis among the 19 terrorists?
