Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

In Belgium, a bi-racial teenager (Idir Ben Addi) develops a close bond with a radical imam (Othmane Moumen) who encourages the boy to follow his extremist belief in the Quran. The intense ideas push the boy further down a sinister path, where he begins to draft a plan to murder his teacher (Myriem Akheddiou). The Dardenne filmmaking duo tests the boundaries of how far youths can stray down an arguably dangerous path at the directorial helm of this drama.
