British satire follows four jihadists as they aspire to commit an act of terror.

ABSTRACT
Omar, Barry, Waj, and Faisal, four "radicalized" young Muslim men living in modern-day Great Britain, aspire to commit an act of terror against the Western world in their home country. To that end, they engage in a series of preparatory missions ranging from attending a terrorist training camp in Pakistan to constructing improvised explosive devices, foiled by their own idiocy at seemingly every turn.
