Shoot On Sight

Synopsis

Shoot On Sight, is a gripping thriller and riveting family drama that unfolds the turmoil in the life of Tariq Ali, a Muslim police officer at Scotland Yard.

Commander Ali, born in Pakistan, married to an English woman, and with two teenage kids, is tasked to investigate the police shooting of a suspected Muslim terrorist on the London Underground. Distrusted by both his British superiors in the London police, and his fellow Muslims, he finds his inquiry hampered from all sides. When evidence surfaces pointing to the slain man's innocence, as well as the existence of a terrorist cell operating in his own backyard, Tariq must face the realization that sometimes, the right decision is the hardest one to make. The film is inspired by the terrorists’ attacks of July 7, 2005 on the London underground that resulted in Shoot On Sight order.
