The Father, The Son And The Holy Jihad retraces the steps of the Ayachi family on their path to Jihad. A European family of Muslim confession, they live double lives because of their tragic involvement in the fight for the Middle East, a conflict that is now spilling over into the West. Talented director Stephane Malterre directs this current affairs documentary as cinema, combining a suspenseful narrative, powerful characters and exclusive footage shot in Syria, France and Belgium.
