Elena and Mahfouz meet in Montreal in the spring of 2008. That summer, however, Mahfouz doesn't return from a trip to Cairo, and his father is picked up and held indefinitely for unknown charges on undisclosed evidence. No longer in contact with each other, Elena and Mahfouz must separately come to terms with their historical situation, preparing for a future shaped by forces they struggle to understand.
Straps were tightened, the mouth gagged, the board lowered, and water again flowed over mouth and nostrils. Again the convulsions and oxygen levels were monitored as they sought new evidence for the plans Mahfouz had confessed.
