    • Synopsis
    • Terry's life grinds to a halt when his accounting firm downsizes and he is laid-off. Bombarded with terror alerts and sensational daytime news coverage in the post 9-11 world, Terry becomes suspicious when a Muslim graduate student moves in next door. Frustrated by his inability to find work, Terry is increasingly convinced that his peculiar new neighbour is involved in terrorism. When his concerns are ignored by his wife and an over-worked FBI agent, Terry considers taking matters into his own hands. As his life spirals out of control, all Terry can cling to is his belief in the truth.
