Powerful story of the evolution of young boys into suicide bombing terrorists, told in very realistic way.

The film explores the life of Islamic boys as they transition from young innocent s to potential suicide bombers. When the time for their martyrdom draws near, there is a scene where they get to see a large city for the first time in their lives. That is how isolated from the rest of the world this group of potential martyrs are – inexperienced of what is outside their small village. This is the best dramatic film I have seen that depicts suicide bombers and it portrays their evolution from youth to hardened martyrs.
