Americans would not have been able to accomplish anything in Iraq and Afghanistan without interpreters. Now many of them face danger in their countries because of their affiliation. The Interpreters follows the stories of Iraqi and Afghan interpreters who worked with US forces. One such interpreter, a chain-smoking Iraqi codenamed “Phillip Morris,” was able to make it to the U.S. with the help of an American soldier he befriended during his deployment, but must now find a way to reunite with his family and deliver them from danger. The film also follows 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.
