In North Syria in a province controlled by a local branch of Al-Quaida, Abu Osama brings his eight sons up to become jihadists.

Pretending to be a sympathizer of their cause, the film director becomes a privileged witness of the family's daily lives wich he shares for two years, offering a rare glimpse of what it means to grow up under an Islamic Caliphate.
