Darwyn Al-Sayeed is a practicing Muslim and an ex-con who is introduced to Farik, an Islamic extremist who is the leader of a Los Angeles Sleeper Cell. Farik tests his new recruit and has him surreptitiously stakeout, with fellow Cell member Bobby Habib, a home where a young Middle-Eastern girl is dating an American-born white man. Ironically, an attractive Caucasian woman named Gayle becomes drawn to Darwyn at Bobby’s family picnic. Later on we are introduced to FBI agent Ray Fuller and learn that Darwyn is an Undercover FBI agent investigating the sleeper cell — operating under the alias Darwyn Al-Hakim. Farik becomes suspicious and drives Darwyn, Bobby and the other Cell members, Christian, Ilija and Tommy to the middle of the desert. Farik then starts to question the group and proclaims there is a “traitor” among them — very much placing Darwyn’s mission and life in danger.
