Although the film takes place in one day, Houssam, Awadein, Sarah, Srg. Peter and others have flashbacks that link all of them together. The flashbacks include incidents during and after
9/11, depictions of Awadein being tortured in Abu Ghraib prisonin Iraq, and Rachel and Soraya in Ghazaand the Occupied Territoriesin Palestine.
As the film progresses, Awadein realizes that Srg. Peter was the prison warden at Abu Ghraib and that he is also staying at the hotel that he intends to bomb. Events reach their climax when Shoukry betrays Awadein upon realizing that the bombing of the hotel is a futile act that will only result in the murder of innocent people.
