With his wife, two daughters, and a steady job in Toronto, Adib is confident he's put his past behind him. But when his daughter Muna suddenly disappears in Damascus, his past threatens to violently catch up to him. Adib teams up with a Canadian emissary (Joshua Jackson), Adib evades former colleagues that are pursuing him.
