Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

An Iraqi terrorist plotting a deadly training bombing in Germany recruits a collection of radicalized students to carry out his nefarious bidding in this topical drama from filmmaker Bijan Benjamin. To the average outsider, Tariq is your typical Iraqi student studying in Germany: He's soft spoken, studious, and entirely committed to his education. Inside, however, Tariq is a simmering cauldron of radicalized rage. After hatching a plan to bomb an underground train, Traiq recruits troubled Islanic convert Marc, financially strapped Turkish taxi driver Mesuit, traumatized Bosnian Sarajevo, and secretive Turk Levent in order to help make his explosive dream a horrifying reality. As all of the pieces begin to fall into place, however, the German police catch wind of the plot, forcing Tariq and his co-conspirators to flee while they still can.
