Yes, and more.  It shows an oppressive system, where the sight of police force sends shivers down a kids spine, and the presence of Mosque only a reminder that her freedom has limits.   It shows the use of religion as a way to advance personal agenda, and all in all, how the ones most oppressed by this system are best served if they unite, rather than resort to violence.   That he could do this all of this in 8 minutes is pretty amazing.  

May we all have good dreams.
