Shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
Montine McLeod, a world-weary flight attendant, and Omar Hassan, a prematurely wise 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy connect with one another amidst the chaos of September 11, 2001. When Montine discovers the boy's direct personal link to the terrorist attacks, she instinctively embarks on an unsanctioned cross-country road trip to help Omar discover his uncertain future.Written by

This is the story of a battle weary air stewardess who has to return a young Muslim boy to his father following 9/11.
This is a familiar clash of cultures drama lifted way above the mundane by great performances by the leads Melissa Yeo (absolutely outstanding) and Antony Keyvan and a strong supporting cast.
She is the world weary American and he is the frightened young Muslim boy just wanting to get home to his dad. The film explores well the prejudices held by all parties and how easily they can be broken down.
This is simple, moving but beautifully well written and shot film that is a cut above many other higher budget dramas. This film deserves a much wider audience and is well worth a watch.
