Having been banished from the convent for excessive zeolotry, Céline falls in with a group of young Muslim men embarking on a spiritual journey through Christian devotion towards Islamic martyrdom in a desperate quest to be closer to God. Utilising a trademark meditative pace and a non-professional lead this is an austere, Bresson-influenced meditation on faith, fanaticism and the desire to satisfy one’s own emotional needs.
