Following the attack on the Twin Towers, a cultural divide slowly begins to crack open between young Pakistani man, Changez (Ahmed), and his American girlfriend, Erica (Hudson). Changez’s American Dream soon begins to slip into nightmare: profiled, wrongfully arrested, strip-searched and interrogated, he is transformed from a well-educated, upwardly mobile businessman to a scapegoat and perceived enemy. With time, he begins to hear the call of his own homeland. Taking us through the culturally rich worlds of New York, Lahore and Istanbul, this is a story about conflicting ideologies where perception and suspicion have the power to determine life or death.
