Lana (Michelle Williams) returns to a hypersensitive, paranoid America from a life abroad. She is in search of her mother's estranged brother, a deeply-scarred Vietnam vet. Before they really even know each other Lana, a returned emigré with a social conscience, and her Uncle Paul, a self-appointed one-man anti-terror squad, witness a horrific drive-by shooting. In the shadow of September 11 and the War on Terror these two must reconcile with each other and their vastly different world-views. Conceived and shot in under three months, for less than half a million US dollars, renowned director Wim Wenders presents a profound musing on what America is and how she sees herself in the post September 11 climate.
