A Father's quest for redemption
22 June 2019 | by roger-99-171599See all my reviews

An intense portrait of a father in search of understanding his son's behavior and radical Islamic inclinations. Back to Tunisia after his mysterious death, he flirts with disaster as he crosses paths with religious locals during his own investigation. Accurate and impressive!
