The movie is about an upper-middle class Pakistani family.
It follows the story of two brothers who share a passion for music. The elder brother pursues it as a career and goes to US to study while the younger brothers falls prey to a jihad-preaching cleric and deserts his musical career for religion. While the younger brother completely brainwashed goes through the regime of militant Islam, the elder brother falls victim to the American prejudices against Muslims and Pakistanis.
The film attempts to initiate a dialogue on the perception of Islam both within and outside Pakistan. Questions such as how Islam is misinterpreted by clerics to support the cause of Jihad, how westerners look at Islam as a violence preaching monolithic religion and looks at every follower with suspicion, are addressed in the movie.
