Yusuf is a young university graduate suffering from discrimination, lack of opportunity and the rage of youth against injustice. As he slowly becomes seduced by extremist thought, his family seem powerless to dissuade him. His Uncle Salim, the only father figure around, is helpless in the face of his nephew's ideology. Salim, recently reunited with Jack, his best friend from childhood, is helpless as these three lives become fatally entwined. But Yusuf's sister has another plan. Knowing the solutions are with the communities of Mombasa - she takes her story to the streets. As the film becomes documentary, we see real audiences in Mombasa take the roles of Yusuf's mother, sister and uncle, and in doing so give voice to the majority Muslim community of coastal Kenya. Can the citizens of Mombasa change the tragic outcome of this story?
