The Screen Guide

Ameena, a young hijab wearing Australian of Palestinian origin, disappears one night after featuring in a poetry slam in the suburbs of Sydney. An Australian air force fighter is shot down over Syria and the pilot is captured by the IS. These two unconnected events wreak havoc in the quiet suburban life of Ricky (Tariq, Ameena's brother). In a climate of heightened mistrust and xenophobia, it is suggested she is not a missing person but a 'home grown radical' gone to Syria to join the Islamic State. The pilot is assassinated and when the video circulated Ricky finds himself forced to face up to the media. Despite his innocence, Ricky must atone for the sins of all those deemed responsible and, for the sake of his family, denounce his sister.
