The Terrorist Next Door takes viewers into the very human story of a young Algerian immigrant named Ahmed Ressam (Chenier Hundal, Partition), from his arrival in Montreal to his recruitment by Majid (Reda Guerinik, Incendies), the leader of an al-Qaeda sleeper cell. Majid’s wife, Nicole (Kathleen Robertson, Hollywoodland, Last Exit), who converted to Islam for the husband she loves, is blind to the fact that his travels as head of an international charity are for less-than-charitable ends. Nicole’s world implodes when an old flame – Pelletier (Chris William Martin, Chaos Theory), now a Canadian Security Intelligence Service officer teamed up with an FBI agent Wade (Michael Ironside, The Machinist) – makes a desperate attempt to convince her that her husband married her as a cover, and is deeply involved in a terrorist plot. But the baton has already been passed, and the chase is on to stop Ressam before he can accomplish his devastating mission in Los Angeles.
