Storyline

After a terrorist attack on an American housing compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where families and FBI Agent Francis Manner are murdered, FBI agent Ronald Fleury blackmails the Saudi Arabian consul to get five days of investigation in the location. He travels with agent Grant Sykes, Janet Mayes and Adam Leavitt to avenge their friend and try to find those responsible for the bombing. The agents find all sorts of difficulties in their investigation, but they are supported by Colonel Faris Al Ghazi that advises the team how to act in a hostile environment. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

A number of extras used in the scenes at the U.S. Contractor compound were not actually Arabic. They were Hispanic local area residents. Makeup was applied to their faces to give them more of a middle-eastern appearance. See more »

Goofs

When Robert Grace is meeting alone with Gideon Young, he has his glasses on at the start of the conversation. After Young removes his glasses, we see that Grace has also removed his, even though we have not seen him do it. Yet, when the camera shows the back of Grace's head, we can still see the side of the frame of his glasses. See more »

I saw an advanced screening of this movie. The movie is exciting, informative and moving. Just enough action to keep your heart pumping and a great story - I became involved. This movie will show you a slice of life in Saudi Arabia. The characters are real and the struggle to get to the truth is real. The interplay between the Americans and the Saudi troops really shows the differences in our cultures while also showing how police are police and just want the truth no matter where they come from. This movie shows how we should be able to get along if we put religion to one side, but how in the end it is our parents hatred and fear of anything different becomes our own hatred and fear while not knowing the why of it. Hate perpetuates hate and in the end we all suffer.
