Summary
Set in the port city of Mombasa, Kenya, this is the story of three men whose lives become intertwined as one of them, Yusuf, a young unemployed Muslim, becomes radicalized by an extremist group. Yusuf's family and friends feel powerless to help him. His uncle and only father figure Salim cannot find the words to counter the extremist ideology, and Salim’s old friend Jack, a local policeman, struggles to gain Yusuf's trust. As tensions rise, Yusuf is eventually driven to a desperate and tragic act. At this point the film becomes a documentary as the film actors take this story as a theatre play to the real communities of Mombasa. These live audiences are then given a chance to take over the roles of Yusuf’s uncle, mother and sister and see if they can change the outcome of the story.--SAFE Kenya website, viewed June 1, 2018
