Four families from wildly different backgrounds cross paths following a married couple's tragic Moroccan vacation.

Richard and Susan Jones, a married couple from San Diego, California attempting to work through their relationship troubles on an exotic Moroccan vacation, encounter tragedy when a bullet fired from a rifle in the possession of a young boy impacts their tour bus, critically injuring Susan.
