Ricky is a young Arab Australian whose peaceful suburban life is turned on its head when his politically active sister, Ameena, disappears without trace. In a climate of distrust and xenophobia, she is soon suspected of being a home grown radical, who joined the ranks of ISIS in Syria. At the same time, an Australian figther pilot gets shot down over Syria and is executed. In a ‘post-facts’ world, the media fabricate a connection between those events and force Ricky to denounce Ameena. He no longer knows who to believe, his sense of what’s right or the 24 hour media cycle of spin.
