DESCRIPTION

A young man with a very absorbent mind understands the teachings of the imam in an uncritical way and becomes more radical than the radicals. Does a fanatic who doesn't listen to the outside world at all and wants to shape his environment according to his own standards have a chance to break out of fanaticism? A Belgian teenager who reads the Quran in its most extreme version is planning a plot to kill his teacher.
