Summary
A wealthy American is touring Morocco with his wife when the two become the focus of an international incident also involving a poor Moroccan farmer who is struggling to keep his two young sons in line and his family together. A San Diego nanny, with her employers absent, makes the disastrous decision to take her charges with her to a wedding in Mexico. A deaf-mute Japanese teen tries to deal with a relationship with her father and the world in general that has been upended by the death of her mother. From issues like terrorism and immigration to husbands talking to their wives and parents understanding their children, Babel interweaves these three stories to examine communication - or the lack of it - within and between cultures
