SYNOPSIS: A shot rings out in the Moroccan countryside as two boys, practicing with their father’s rifle, unintentionally fire on a passenger bus. In the U.S., an immigrant nanny is torn between attending her son’s wedding in Mexico and watching over the two American children under her care, so she takes them across the border with the hope of safely satisfying both issues. Chieko, a deaf-mute Japanese girl, struggles with emotional isolation brought on by others’ acceptance of her condition as well as the suicide of her mother years earlier. Americans Richard and Susan are vacationing abroad on a tour bus in the deserts of Morocco, when a bullet comes from out of nowhere and critically wounds Susan.
