This visually sophisticated, thought provoking drama impresses with its striking photography, raw collision of cultures and seemingly unrelated events that captivate with their social relevance and universal human story.
We see how American tourists in Morocco find themselves dependent on the kindness and resourcefulness of the very people they fear. In Mexico two American children find themselves lost and abandoned in the desert after a misunderstanding and clash of cultures at the border. In Japan a frustrated and lonely deaf teenager is unable to communicate her feelings to anyone. And two Moroccan village boys find themselves on the run from ruthless government authorities after a foolish game of target practice causes a tragic accident.
