    • This provocative international thriller follows a young man, Ali, as he travels across the globe from Algeria to New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles, revealing that he leads a double life as a sleeper agent pretending to be a university student. As he awaits activation orders from three other members of his cell team to attack the United States, he begins to develop deep and meaningful relationships with some of the very people he was sent to destroy. Caught in the cross-hairs of a murderous plot, Ali is torn between completing his mission and saving the people he loves.
