Russell Ammiano is rushing out to work on September 11 when he gets a call telling him his mother has died. That call saves his life because, moments after he receives the call, his advertising agency is wiped out when terrorists fly planes into the Twin Towers. He hitchhikes home to the hick town in Kansas he left behind so many years ago to bury his mother and make arrangements for looking after his mentally disabled brother, Ben. He has no intention of staying - but then he falls in love with Anat, an Egyptian girl who runs the bakery in town and who becomes the target of anti-Arab racism in the wake of September 11. It’s a love story but not in a saccharine sweet kind of way. Fans of JoJo Moyes’ Me Before You will enjoy it.
