In a high-stakes immigration case, an Arab American man is accused of fraudulent marriage to gain a visa, and deportation will send him back to a life-threatening situation. When his interpreter, a young Arab American woman, receives a marriage proposal from his White American lawyer, she is caught between the image of a storybook American life, her feelings for the defendant, and her need to define her own identity, leaving it up to her which words to translate and which to leave unspoken. Directed by Carla Milarch. Featuring Robbie Abdelhoq, Aya Aziz, and Jeremy Kucharek.
