Just 60 miles north of New York City sits the poverty-stricken town of Newburgh, where, in 2009, four men were lured by a shady Pakistani man into a plot to bomb Jewish centers in the Bronx. But once the men were on board, their leader, who doubled as an FBI undercover agent, led them straight to the authorities. Their arrest was hailed as a national victory in the war on terror. Using neverbefore-seen footage from hidden cameras, David Heilbroner and Kate Davis investigate what homegrown terrorism truly means in this shocking and galvanizing expose. The film received the prestigious 2015 Peabody Award.

Kate Davis taught and studied documentary filmmaking at Harvard University. She directed Southern Comfort, which portrayed the life of a male transsexual. The Emmy-nominated film won over 25 awards.

David Heilbroner wrote and produced several films for A&E Television Networks. He was senior producer for Crime Stories and American Babylon for Court TV. He is a former prosecutor at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
