Filmmaker Eunice Lau's heart-wrenching documentary "Accept the Call" chronicles the pain of Yusuf Abdurahman, who fled Somalia as a refugee 25 years ago to make a new start in Minnesota. Now, however, he is seeing his worst fear coming true: His son Zacharia, 19, has been arrested in an FBI counter-terrorism sting. The film explores racism and anti-immigrant prejudice through the eyes of an anguished father struggling to understand why his son would leave American life behind to join the radical Islamic State (ISIS).
