Part drama, part documentary, the film tells the story of Yusuf, a young university graduate suffering discrimination, lack of opportunity and raging against the injustice he sees around him. He slowly becomes seduced by extremist thought, which leaves his family powerless to dissuade him. His Uncle Salim, the only father figure in his life, is helpless in the face of his nephew s ideology. When Salim discovers his new next-door neighbour is actually his long lost childhood friend, Jack, he is delighted. But Jack has become a policeman, a job which in a City increasingly divided by religion and tribe and simmering with violence, places a seemingly unbridgeable gulf between them.
