Khaled has traveled from Iraq to Minnesota to find his best friend, Jeff. Problem is, an IED attack has left Jeff in a coma—and Jeff's father blames Khaled and everyone who looks like him. The two men wait it out together, and in the long silence an unexpected common language emerges, unleashing centuries of rage and resentment … and music. A heavy metal clash between Midwest and Middle East.
