Life After Terror

- / - / - / -

NOOR HUDA - helps returning and released extremists to reintegrate into society in Indonesia. Huda has an interesting past. As a teenager in school, he was radicalized and recruited by an extremist group. After graduation, his schoolmates went to Pakistan for military training. Huda, on the other hand, goes to work for the Washington Post. In 2002, he is sent to cover the Bali Bombings. There, he makes the shocking discovery – one of the Bali bombers was his roommate from school. This drives Huda on a lifelong quest to figure out, what turns ordinary people into extremists and how we can counter it.
