As anti-Muslim attacks are on the rise in Brexit Britain, Imran Perretta lends his voice to disaffected Muslim youth who the United Kingdom continues to treat as a threat. In this two-screen group testimonial on their troubled upbringing, the young men reclaim their politicised bodies as an instrument to make their own percussive music.
