Alexander plays Leo, a bartender living in the pulsing city, who was left mute after a childhood accident.

The only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah, played by Seyneb Saleh.

When she vanishes without a trace, Leo's search for her takes him deep into the city's seedy underbelly where pair of wise-cracking American surgeons played by Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux are the only recurring clue.
