Visual artist Asya follows the politics of her Middle East homeland on TV while enjoying a chic Manhattan lifestyle of parties, supermodels and limos. But when a childhood friend disappears, Asya suspects a CIA abduction and – to her new boyfriend's bemusement – sets out to crack the conspiracy. Nominated for the Sundance's Grand Jury Prize, British-American director Zeina Durra fuses dry comedy with alluring political drama, brilliantly depicting the everyday paranoia of post-9/11 America.
