Summary
A wealthy American couple touring Morocco become the focus of an international incident involving a poor Moroccan farmer. A San Diego nanny makes a disastrous decision to take her charges with her to a wedding in Mexico while her employers are absent. A deaf-mute Japanese teen tries to deal with a relationship with her father and the world in general that has been upended by the death of her mother. It's about a gun. It's about communication - or the lack of it - both intercultural and intracultural. Raises issues like terrorism and immigration, and is as basic as husbands talking to their wives and parents understanding their children
