A documentary about Tariq Jahan, whose son Haroon was killed in the 2011 Birmingham riots. Hours after his son's death Tariq pleaded with angry crowds; "I've lost my son" he said "step forward if you want to loose yours. Otherwise, go home." The mood was transformed, the crowds dispersed and Tariq became a national hero. The films explores the way in which his faith and family enabled him come to terms with his son's death and inspired him to help bridge the gaps between Birmingham's ethnic and religious communities.
