Warriors from the North is a relevant, agenda setting film about the radicalization of young people. The film tells the story of a group of young Somali men who want to join the Islamic fundamentalist terror organization, Al-Shabab, to become suicide bombers in Somalia.

The film examines why young men in their early twenties decide to head towards this horrifying destiny. Through one of the insiders, ”The Shadow”, who chose to stay behind in Copenhagen, we get access to the mindset of a potential terrorist in the making.
