In an effort to prevent attacks on the nation, undercover FBI agents make friends with potential terrorists around the US. Saeed ‘Shariff’ Torres has worked as an FBI counterterrorism informant for more than 20 years. The father of a young boy, he now yearns to leave his dangerous job behind. At the start of the film, Shariff is headed to Pittsburgh, claiming that this is going to be his last sting. Quite oddly, he’s invited two filmmakers to tag along to document his work. Faced with an ethically murky and high-stakes story, the directors respond with poise and tenacity. Their stunning film thrills and bewilders in equal measure.
