In Central Park, New York, a young woman asks a tourist for help. The meeting sparks off a series of other encounters, and a dangerous hide and seek game ensues. He can run, he can hide, he can outwit his pursuers, but in the process the Tourist loses everything, including his identity and control over his own fate.
Is he a pawn in a political game of international relations?
Is he at the mercy of a powerful and ruthless megalomaniac businessman-the controlling father of the young woman?
Or is he simply a very insecure, passive man who becomes a victim of his own self-fulfilling prophecy?
