Layla is an 18-year-old girl, born and raised in Amsterdam. Layla is smart, witty and stubborn – and of Moroccan background. In these times of constant terrorist threat, she struggles with the increasing suspicion towards girls with headscarves and boys with beards that every day she witnesses. While her frustration grows, her faith intensifies. She joins a group of radical Muslims who fight for their practice of Islam. Layla makes political flyers and posts films online depicting horrors in Syria and Gaza. And she flirts with the charismatic Abdel.
