In August 2005, a question was posed by a group of Sikhs:  After all the outreach and education done in the post 9/11 world, do fellow Americans know who the Sikhs are now?  The only way they felt to find the answers was to actually go out into the streets and see what people thought.

Filmed in Washington DC, several brave Non-Sikh interviewees step up to the camera and give their perspectives and thoughts about who the Sikhs are, and what beliefs they hold.
