Storyline

A multi-narrative journey that weaves between three families in present-day Bradford, where three worlds collide and leave a Muslim scholar fighting for his life. Yusif, the son of Mosque scholar Rehman, is doing his best to keep his dad's dream at arms length. Zac is from a White working class family whose troubles hit fifth gear due to his radical behaviour. Khadija is second generation Iraqi and a recent graduate in Politics whose ambitions are about to be put to the test. Fuelled by yet another grooming case making the headlines, they must face the storm before the calm - and they call it 'Islamophobia Written by Conor Ibrahiem

difficult subject tackled sensitively
8 November 2017 | by deanjones-08506See all my reviews

Was led to this film by a 3/5 star review in Empire. I was pleasantly surprised by its balance, well-shot imagery of Bradford and lovely music. It avoids stereotypes and easy solutions, posing more questions than answers. The performances are mostly good, especially the young leads. It was clearly a very low budget effort but taking this into account, it's an impressive piece of work.
