Tamás is a Hungarian immigrant, struggling to lay the foundations of a new life in New Zealand for his wife and son.

Meanwhile in Dunedin, Farida, a young Muslim woman working as a translator the the security forces, catches ambiguous glimpses of the terrorist plot that threatens to engulf them all.
