Abstract:

A young man sets out to understand why his brother has fundamentally changed his life and beliefs, filming their encounters over 12 months to discover more about the world he has chosen. Like himself, Robb Leech's step-brother Rich was an ordinary white middle-class boy from an English seaside town and, until a couple of years ago, they were almost inseparable. But then Rich moved away, and the family learned via a press story that he'd become a radical Islamist, changing his name to Salahuddin. Associating with jihadist fundamentalists, he believes the UK should be ruled by Sharia law. Over the course of the film, Robb attempts to reconnect with his extremist step-brother, to discover what's made the person he'd looked up to as a teenage role model so strongly reject all that his family and the Western world stand for.
