    • Synopsis
    • Omar Cigal is the eldest of two Muslim brothers of Senegalese descent. The black sheep of an otherwise devout family, the film begins as he is released from prison following a two-year stint for armed robbery. On returning to the family home, Omar finds that his supposedly virtuous sibling, Ibrahim, has become radicalised and fled to Syria.
      In bid to save his beloved brother and make amends to his estranged parents, Omar undertakes a suicidal mission to Syria to trace his brother’s footsteps and bring him home. Omar eventually stumbles on his brother, however what begins as a joyful reunion descends quickly into a living nightmare as both men are plunged into a dark, chaotic and amoral world from which there is seemingly no escape.
