A small plane was blown up in an act of sabotage over Northern Quebec, Canada. The incident was quickly analyzed and termed a mechanical failure. The case was closed in a rush. A young actor from Montreal dies in Afghanistan, killed by a missile from a drone. His death opens up wounds and discussions that are not in the public domain. These two seemingly disparate events form the backbone of a compelling contemporary "ideas thriller," set in Montreal's Main district and in the blue-green mountains of Kandahar.
