Impressive graduation project
31 December 2018 | by gbill-74877See all my reviews

Dramatic and touching. The courage shown by a group of Muslims to shield a young Christian woman while they're all at point blank range is inspiring. The film does a great job of transporting us to Kenya too, and the performances throughout the cast are quite good. The film is a little preachy but the message is a good one. The Muslim terrorists commit violence believing they are justified because Islam is under attack; the young Christian woman hates all Muslims because her husband and son have both been killed by them in the past. Neither see the danger of how this blanket condemnation of a group based on the actions of a few perpetuates a cycle of violence, and how it runs counter to what ought to be the true goal of their faiths, spiritual enlightenment. A little simplistic overall, but the events are true, and it's a window into a first step.
