Journalist Neil Patterson is held captive by militants in Palestine. Somehow, he and his wife Emily begin communicating on the astral plane; when a folk-singer-turned-prophet camps out in Emily’s apartment claiming to know a way to bring Neil home, and Neil himself then seems to return out of thin air, Emily must turn to her husband’s lover to help discern truth from fiction, as her wildest hopes become a nightmare.
