Who are these people who accept death in the name of God? What cultures do they grow up in? Why do they worship those who give their lives to martyrdom? 

A TV documentary about the willingness to kill and die in the name of God seeks answers to these questions. The film gives an insight into fundamentalist Islamist circles in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Lebanon and Palestine.
