Mohamed, a Tunisian farmer, is not thrilled when his son Malek, who went to Syria as a jihadist a year ago, returns home with his heavily pregnant, fully veiled Syrian wife, who is only 14 years old. The oppressive presence of the child wife and his son’s Islamism lead Mohamed to a fatal act.

Oscar-nominated study on fanaticism and narrow-mindedness.
