Follows Baghdad film student, Muthana Mohmed, who Liev Schreiber invited to join the production of "Everything Is Illuminated" after his film school was bombed. Soon after Muthana arrives on-set in Prague, the contrasts between his life experience and everyone else's prove gaping. At night, he watches television images of escalating violence in Baghdad. By day, he listens as crew members discuss the details of filmmaking. When Muthana declares his love for George Bush, the liberal producers are horrified. Living away from his family for the first time, Muthana also is not accustomed to taking care of himself. He has difficulty managing fairly simple tasks. As Muthana starts to fear for his safety if he returns to Baghdad, his patrons reach the limits of their charity.
