Frankie is part of the war-machine, a successful aerospace engineer designing drones for the military. When she meets Kahil, a French-Algerian student, she embarks on a passionate affair and, for the first time in her life, utterly, thrillingly loses control. One morning at work, she’s detained by the security services and told that Kahil is a “person of interest”. She finds that she has crossed a line into a nightmare world of suspicion and accusation. Realising how little she knows of this man, Frankie determines to find out the truth, only to discover to her cost that betrayal always comes from those closest to us.
