The film has been inspired by the suicide bombings in London of July 7, 2005, in which four British Muslims killed themselves and 52 other innocent people in London. Those injured totalled to about 700. The film unfolds the turmoil in the life of Tariq Ali (Naseeruddin Shah), a Muslim police officer at Scotland Yard. Commander Ali, born in Lahore, and married to an English woman, is tasked to investigate the police shooting of a suspected Muslim terrorist in the London Underground. Distrusted by both his superiors 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 realisation that sometimes, the right decision is the hardest one to make.
