Ten year-old Yachine and his 13-year-old brother Hamid live in Sidi Moumen, an impoverished slum on the outskirts of Casablanca. Hamid, though just a child, works hard to sustain his family by any means, but eventually get involved with the "wrong crowd" and becomes one of the local neighborhood bosses. Yet, he continues to fiercely protect his brother Yachine - until the day he is thrown into prison. After years in jail, Hamid returns home a changed man: he is now an Islamic fundamentalist.

Powerful story of the evolution of young boys into suicide bombing terrorists, told in very realistic way.

Not always easy to watch, but very revealing, very compelling

The film explores the life of Islamic boys as they transition from young innocent s to potential suicide bombers. When the time for their martyrdom draws near, there is a scene where they get to see a large city for the first time in their lives. That is how isolated from the rest of the world this group of potential martyrs are – inexperienced of what is outside their small village. This is the best dramatic film I have seen that depicts suicide bombers and it portrays their evolution from youth to hardened martyrs.
