The film is about an American accountant bombarded with cable news and the media's obsession with terrorist plots in the post 9/11 world, who receives a jolt when an unattached Islamic graduate student moves in next door.


Critical reception

Richard Nilsen, film critic for The Arizona Republic, liked the film at times, but gave the film a mixed review. He wrote, "It does build up considerable suspense and tension; Renfroe has learned well from Hitchcock. And the final confrontation builds to a harrowing pitch. But that can't rescue the film from a silly, melodramatic finish."[2]
