When Sabine (Arsinée Khanjian), a high school French teacher, gives her class a translation exercise based on a real news story about a terrorist who plants a bomb in the airline luggage of his pregnant girlfriend, the assignment has a profound effect on one student, Simon (Devon Bostick). Years ago, Simon's father Sami (Noam Jenkins) crashed the family car, killing both himself and his wife, Rachel (Blanchard), leaving Simon to be raised by his well-meaning uncle (Scott Speedman). In the course of translating, Simon re-imagines that the news item is his own family's story and casts himself as the son of the terrorist standing in for his father. His resulting claims about the deaths of his father and mother stir up a storm that splashes over the edges of his own life and into communities both local and virtual.
