Seventeen-year old Munir, a Pakistani immigrant who was raised and lives in Midwood, Brooklyn, is very different from his religious Muslim parents. While they pray five times a day, Munir watches television, plays videogames, and wonders about nearly everything.

With questions like "How do we know our life in not a dream?," "What if 'The Matrix' is real?." and "What if you don't really exist, but are just a figment of my imagination?" constantly rattling around in his head, Munir's story is a window into the philosophical realm of one teenager's mind.

Munir was mentored by Eric Salat.
