He dreams about killing Muslims, and about Skyler, although his parents insist she never existed. A neighbor adopts a Muslim orphan, setting off a series of incidents that will lead to either tragedy or redemption for Dorian, as he struggles to prove that his sister existed - and was killed by a terrorist attack.
