Fascinated and horrified by the rise in “home grown” radicals, ambitious journalist Sam goes undercover in an extremist cell in Paris, determined to uncover the roots of the phenomenon. Following his initiation into the group, events accelerate at an alarming rate and soon Sam finds himself in mortal danger as the wildly unpredictable leader of the cell plans an attack in the heart of Paris. Made in France delves into the minds of young radicals, exploring the duality of desire and desperation that draws young people into the arms of terrorist organizations. Made in France is a searingly relevant and a visceral thriller about the critical contemporary phenomenon of “home grown” extremism.
