Synopsis

African-born U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome (Nicole Kidman) inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nation's General Assembly. Realizing she's become a target of the assassins as well, Silvia's desperate to thwart the plot – if only she can survive long enough to get someone to believe her. Tobin Keller (Sean Penn) – the federal agent charged with protecting the interpreter – nonetheless suspects she may not be telling the whole truth.

Silvia and Tobin, by nature, see life from different points of view: one, a U.N. interpreter, believes in the power and sanctity of words; the other, a Secret Service agent, believes in reading people based on their behavior, no matter what is said.
