Throughout my investigation, I've got

in contact with four disoriented men.

To earn their trust and protect my family,

I was forced to live in a hotel

and lie about my true identity.

Take a look, here's dad.

Do you want me to do it?

With pleasure.


Put it back!

Put it back on the wheel.

Huh Malik?

Don't eat that.

Is it good?


Good or what?

Hassan is an imam right?

No, Hassan is the group leader.

His real name is Pelletier.

He converted in jail.

He went to Pakistan for 6 months

in a training camp.

And then he wants to leave

permanently France for the holy war.

In any case, he must come back

with enough contact.

So what are other members doing

when he's not here?

They get motivated

and I think they will follow him.

They don't want to disappoint him.

Are you sure they don't doubt anything?


Except two or three war suras,

they know nothing about the Quran.

When are you planning to stop?

You're not going with them, are you?

Well, I don't have enough content

for the moment so...

I'm going back to the hotel but I promise

to come back home after their departure.

Alright. Well...

Don't worry!

It's almost done.

How the f*ck can he play for

France national team?

What the hell is he doing ?

Thank god it's a friendly match bro.

Sam look at this!

I didn't know this one!

That's a good one.

Not bad!

Funny huh?

I'm saving it.

Do you parents know about your


He's alone!

You're crazy.

If they knew it, they'd cut me off,

they'd kick me out of here. Nah!

My parents are very Catholic.

Why didn't you stay Catholic?


Because it was boring.

That's all?

What do you mean ?

What about you, why did you choose

your father's religion?

Well, my mother was communist so

there wasn't much future.
