SYNOPSIS

 

Local interpreters were key to the U.S. war effort, but now many face danger in their countries because of their affiliation. The Interpreters is the story of how they are rebuilding their lives. It is told through a chain-smoking Iraqi codenamed “Phillip Morris,” who was able to make it to the U.S. with the help of an American soldier he befriended during his deployment, an Afghan called Malik, who is still working as an active interpreter at the U.S. base in Kabul despite threats to his life, and another Afghan named Mujtaba, who resorted to flee with his family to Europe as refugees.
