Best Director - 2019 Cannes Film Festival
Ahmed, a young fanatic barely out of childhood, is caught between his imam’s ideals of purity and life’s temptations. He plans to kill his teacher in the name of his religion. How can love of life win out over his desire to put someone to death?

En Belgique, aujourd’hui, le destin du Jeune Ahmed, 13 ans, pris entre les idéaux de pureté de son imam et les appels de la vie.
