Angry and depressed over losing his job, accountant Terry Allen begins to suspect his new neighbor, a single Islamic grad student with a penchant for unexplained late night activities, is at the center of a terrorist conspiracy. Although both Terry’s wife and the FBI agent to whom he reports his suspicions are skeptical about his fears, Terry becomes increasingly obsessed with uncovering the man’s true identity. Convinced he’s all that stands between this Middle-Eastern stranger and a deadly terror attack, Terry finally decides to take matters into his own hands – with shocking results.
A tense psychological thriller in the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Civic Duty takes a controversial look at fear and prejudice in the highly charged atmosphere of post-9/11 America. Set during a unique and frightening moment in U.S. history, as the nation grappled with setting the proper balance between personal freedom and enhanced security, Civic Duty challenges viewers to examine their own preconceptions about tolerance and terror. Directed by Jeff Renfroe from an original screenplay by Andrew Joiner, Civic Duty stars Peter Krause (“Six Feet Under”), Richard Schiff (“The West Wing”), Kari Matchett (“Invasion”) and Egyptian movie idol Khaled Abol Naga in his American screen debut. The film is produced by Andrew Lanter, Tina Pehme, Kim Roberts Peter Krause and Andrew Joiner. Eli Rothnman, Kelly Dunacn, David Boim and Vic Sarin are the executive producer.
