Jabir, Usama, and Useir are three young Bosnian brothers who grew up in the shadow of their father, a strict Islamist preacher. When he gets sentenced to two years in prison for terrorism, the three brothers are suddenly left alone. The newly acquired freedom leads them on the difficult journey to becoming men. What follows is an exploration of youth, manhood, and the search for identity.
