Where did you watch this movie?

Young Ahmed follows an impressionable teenager around 15 years old who wants to follow the Quran to the letter: no drinking, dressing modestly, praying at certain hours, and no pre-marital kissing. He will come to blows with anyone who claims to be Muslim, yet won’t follow these rules. Ahmed fakes progress after acting out of turn, relenting by letting others turn on the radio. Despite this small gesture, he plans to go back and finish the crime he started.
