Ahmed (played with disarming natural ease by Idir Ben Addi) spends his days studying radical Islam with his Imam, much to the consternation of his frantic mother Louise (Claire Bodson). Ahmed begins to hate behaviour he used to find normal. At school, he refuses to shake hands with his teacher, Ines (Myriem Akheddiou), because she is a woman. And at home, he abuses his mother for drinking alcohol. He is so obsessed with his own religious purity that when a girl wants to be friends with him, he asks her to convert. With vividly complex characters, this heart-rending tale looks at how the young and the vulnerable are brainwashed into a radical ideology.
