Brief synopsis

Der Film gründet sich auf reale Videoaufnahmen, die die Protagonisten dieses Filmes selbst gemacht haben: der junge Deutsche Thomas, der als radikal-islamistischer Kämpfer in den „Heiligen Krieg“ ziehen wird, und Alexej Basargin, Hauptmann einer russischen Spezialeinheit zur Terroristenbekämpfung. Diese beiden Menschen filmen ihr Leben, dass zu Beginn wohl unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnte, ihren Alltag, ihre Arbeit und später einen Krieg, den sie auf befeindeten Seiten führen und in dem sie sterben werden, wenn das Schicksal ihre Wege sich in den Bergen Tschetscheniens kreuzen lässt.

The recent tragic events in Paris have drawn the world’s attention to the danger represented by radically oriented Islamists for the whole civilized world. Artem Temnikov's film investigates the reasons why Islamists manage to recruit young people in European countries and send them to fight at various hot spots (Syria, Iraq, Chechnya). The film tells the story of a young German man, who fell under the influence of such recruiters and ended up in Chechnya. When he realized his mistake, it was already too late. The film is based on real events, video footage of the Special Forces, and a trophy piece found after a fight in a dugout in a Chechen village.
The characters and events are real.
