Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Alex Gibney, Academy Award-winning director of Taxi to the Dark Side, turns his lens on journalist Lawrence Wright in this filmed version of Wright's deeply-personal one man play. A member of the press covering Islamic terror, Wright finds his objectivity slipping as Muslim rhetoric grows more fiery, and tensions between the West and the Middle East soar to an all-time high.
