Sinopsi

The director of Return to Homs goes back to his homeland to live for two years with the family of Abu Osama, a member of Al-Qaeda in Syria. There he witnesses how his children are trained from a very young age to become Jihad soldiers. We discover from within what it means to grow up with a jihadist father.

His two children, Osama and Ayman, worship, admire and obey their father, but while Osama seems to follow the Jihad path, Ayman wants to go back to school. After winning the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Talal Derki seduces us with a story that helps understand the complexity and tragedy of the current conflict in Syria through the day-to-day life of both children.
