The Islamic movement Dawa has established itself in Mali by proclaiming a return to the sources of Islam. When in 2012, an Islamist rebellion takes control of northern Mali to impose the sharia law, we find among the jihadists several leaders of the Dawa movement. Like many other believers, Malick Konate, a young Dawa member, feels betrayed and wonders if he has made a mistake. This film retraces his religious and personal journey.
