Coming-of-age drama written and directed by Armenian-Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan.

After becoming orphaned as a boy in mysterious circumstances, Simon (Devon Bostick) has been brought up by his Uncle Tom (Scott Speedman).

Simon's memories of his mother Rachel (Rachel Blanchard) and father Sami (Noam Jenkins) are shrouded in doubt and conflicting accounts.

When Simon's teacher Sabine (Arsinee Khanjian) reads Simon's class a news story about an attempted aircraft bombing, Simon identifies strongly with the story and rewrites it as a version of the accident that caused his parents' death.

As his interpretation of the story gathers momentum and ends up in the public arena on the internet, Simon finally comes face to face with his own memories and experiences - and discovers that only he can decide what to believe about his fractured past.
