Storyline

Talal Derki’s new film Fathers and Sons tells the story of the young generation in Syria and asks about the future of children, who grew up in the war.

Talal Derki returns to his homeland where he gains the trust of a radical Islamist family, sharing their daily life for over two years. His camera is providing an extremely rare insight into what it means to grow up in an Islamic Caliphate.
