  The Interpreter DVD — The Interpreter - The Interpreter movie
In the Interpreter DVD, escalating events begin when U.N. translator Silvia Broome (Nicole Kidman) alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand.
With the words "The Teacher will never leave this room alive," in an instant, Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers.
