Based on the novel by Ann Patchett, the film follows a famous American soprano who is in Lima, South America to give a private concert for a Japanese mogul.  Mirroring a real life event where  a rebel group entered the Ambassador's residence and took 100s of hostages in an attempt to hold the government to account for human rights abuses, the film focusses on the relationships between the hostages and the rebels. The characters find common ground exploring forbidden friendships and even love.
