We begin in 2011 in Lahore. At an outdoor café a Pakistani man named Changez (Riz Ahmed) tells an American journalist (Liev Schreiber) about his experiences in the United States. Ten years earlier, as a graduate fresh from Princeton, Changez sought fortune and glory on Wall Street. The American Dream seemed well within his grasp, complete with a smart and gorgeous artist girlfriend (Kate Hudson). But when the Twin Towers were attacked, Changez’s dream began to slip into nightmare: profiled, wrongfully arrested, strip-searched and interrogated, he was transformed from a well-educated, upwardly mobile businessman to a scapegoat and perceived enemy. With time, he began to hear the call of his own homeland. Taking us through the culturally rich and beguiling worlds of New York, Lahore and Istanbul, The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a story about conflicting ideologies where perception and suspicion have the power to determine life or death.
