An insight into the extraordinary journey taken by two young British Islamist terrorists, Asif Hanif and Omar Sharif Khan , who emerged from the suburbs of Derby and Hounslow to bomb a seaside bar in Tel Aviv in April 2003. Hanif died in his own explosion and Omar's body was found a fortnight later in the sea off the coast of Israel. Three members of Omar's family were later prosecuted, and acquitted, under the Terrorism Act for their alleged knowledge of the atrocity. This film unearths evidence of how two young men became embroiled in radical politics and reveals their involvement in a wider network of British Jihadists.
