In Morocco, a troubled married couple is on vacation trying to work out their differences. Meanwhile, a Moroccan herder buys a rifle for his sons so they can keep the jackals away from his herd. A girl in Japan coping with rejection, the death of her mother, the emotional distance of her father, her own self-consciousness, and a disability struggles with modern life in the enormous metropolis of Tokyo, Japan. Then, on the opposite side of the world, the husband and wife’s Mexican nanny takes the couple's two children with her to her son's wedding in Mexico, only to come into trouble on the return trip. Combined, it provides a powerful story and an equally powerful looking glass into the lives of seemingly random people around the world, and it shows just how connected we really are.
