Synopsis

William Garnett, ancien membre d’un gang du Sud du Nouveau Mexique, vient de passer dix-huit ans en prison pour meurtre. Converti à l'Islam et en quête de réinsertion, il est libéré en conditionnel pour bonne conduite et essaie de changer de vie. Il se lie d'amitié avec Emily Smith, son officier de probation, qui vient d'être transféré à Luna, petite ville du Nouveau Mexique. Mais au moment où Garnett commence à profiter de sa liberté et à connaitre le bonheur, il est malheureusement rattrapé par son passé. Entre le Sherif Agati, qui veut se venger du meurtre de son adjoint, tué vingt ans plut tôt et son ancien gang qui le harcèle pour le faire revenir, Garnett sent ses vieux démons remonter à la surface.

The film depicts a few days in the lives of two women, Marilyn (Sienna Miller) and Mona (Golshifteh Farahani) who, on the outside, could not be more different. Marilyn is an American-born menial secretary at a small business. Mona is an Egyptian immigrant who manages the convenience store next door with her mother-in-law (Chafia Boudraa) and her husband, Mourad (Roschdy Zem). During brief encounters, the women find solace in each other from the stress of their daily lives. Marilyn's husband, Harvey (Jesse Bob Harper), is unemployed. Feeling jealous and emasculated, he criticizes her taking part in a belly-dancing class (believing that she is too old) and uses her money to spend his nights drinking at bars. Meanwhile, Mona endures the constant plague of verbal abuse from her mother-in-law who blames her for not conceiving a child. Though in love with his wife, Mourad refuses to stand up to his mother, a disappointment that leaves Mona feeling depressed and alone in their marriage.
