In 2011, Sally Evans made a devastating discovery – her eldest son, Thomas aged just 21, had left their home in a Buckinghamshire village and travelled to Somalia join a deadly Islamist terrorist group. Thomas had been recruited to Al Shabaab – an Al Qaeda affiliate. Thomas became the only known white British man to join the terror group. This powerful film documents the daily struggle Sally and her youngest son, Micheal face as they try to reconcile the Thomas they knew – a loving mild-mannered ‘normal teenage lad’ with Abdul Hakim, the jihad-preaching Islamist he has become.
