Rais Bhuiyan, a survivor of a horrific 9/11 hate crime, captured the world's attention when he chose to openly forgive his assailant. His extraordinary act of forgiveness propelled him into the spotlight, when he initiated a remarkable campaign aimed at reversing his attacker's death penalty sentence.


Two decades later, during a time marked by incessant turmoil and division, Bhuiyan embarks on a profound journey to understand the roots of hatred and discover the invaluable lessons that can be gleaned from both victims and perpetrators alike.

Pain and Peace beckons audiences on this voyage of self-discovery.
