Atom Egoyan first read a news article about a Jordanian man who sent his pregnant Irish girlfriend on an El Al flight with a bomb in her luggage, without her knowledge, in 1986. He encountered the story again in 2006 which made him decide that there was ripe material here for a film about the extremism of terrorism and parental legacies.
