Mohsin Hamid's international best-seller concerning a Pakistani Princeton graduate whose life is forever altered by the 9/11 terrorist attacks arrives on the screen courtesy of celebrated filmmaker Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding, Salaam Bombay!). Changez Khan (Riz Ahmed) was a bright Wall Street business analyst working under the influential Jim Cross (Kiefer Sutherland) when two passenger jets brought down the World Trade Center as he watched in horror. His American Dream shattered alongside his future with the radiant Erica (Kate Hudson), Khan is suddenly branded an enemy in the land he called home. The humiliation of being wrongfully arrested, profiled, and interrogated soon drives Khan back to his family in Pakistan. There, Khan's eloquence and charisma make him a natural leader among the anti-American student population, but a potential threat in the eyes of the U.S. government. Years later, American journalist Bobby Lincoln (Liev Schreiber) tracks down Khan in Lahore to interview him about a foreign professor who has been abducted by extremists, and threatened with execution. Recognizing the danger to his family, and well aware that Lincoln has a hidden agenda, the man who slowly became the victim of his own cruel fate recounts the story of his profound and unexpected transformation, and the devastating repercussions it threatens to have on everything he holds sacred. Martin Donovan and Om Puri also star.
