Plot Summary NABIL, 10, is chosen to play the hero in an Islamic propaganda film by Malik, a charismatic film director. As the production goes on, Nabil is proud of his commitment and to the fatherly love he is slowly earning by his talented director. But as their film reaches the climax which involves literally killing the American soldiers who are forced to act for them, Nabil begins to psychologically suffer, questioning himself if he is able to take someone’s life. As the night before the execution darkens, Nabil is faced with a choice: to stay and become the hero for his people, gaining a family that will shelter him in the process, or leave and become a lost child in a brutal world.
