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.
