Plot & Details

A terrorist bombing victim who devoted his life to trumpeting the threat that Islam poses to western culture finds his marriage threatened by a converted Christian possessed by the vengeance of jihad in action specialist Renzo Martinelli's tense and topical thriller. Eschewing his career as a journalist shortly after losing both his legs in the bombing of the U.S. embassy in Nairobi, Alceo (Jordi Molla) now dedicates every waking moment to educating students about the Muslim threat. When Alceo's wife Leda (Jane March) is nearly killed during an airport shootout between policemen and trigger-happy terrorists, the loving husband promises to spirit his wife away for a relaxing vacation in Cappadocia. Shortly after arriving at their scenic destination, Alceo and Leda come into contact with Italian gem merchant Ludovico Vicedomini (Harvey Keitel) and his Italian-speaking Muslim friend Shahid (F. Murray Abraham). Though on the surface Ludovico and Shadid keep their inflammatory religious rhetoric to a low-key minimum, a closer look at their motivations reveal two terrorist masterminds determined to bring the west to its knees while converting or killing anyone who opposes them. Seduced in a moment of weakness by the charismatic Ludovico, Leda is subsequently targeted to become the unsuspecting carrier of a dirty bomb. Despite his devotion to the Islamic cause, however, Ludovico soon finds his conviction put to the ultimate test as be begins to fall in love with the conflicted Leda.
