Synopsis:
The Wildness tells the journey of Ben, 28 year old offender in existential crisis. The film starts as he gets out of prison were he spent three years for robbery and were he converted to Islam. Now free, he wants to learn to pray and to become a good mechanic. But what he wants above all is to reconnect with his son Samir. But Samir doesn’t wait for him. And Nadia, his ex-wife, doesn’t have time and doesn’t trust him. Meanwhile Mustapha, his new "guru", convinces him that he will never find his place in this society. Mustapha exacerbates the sense of injustice that Ben feels and compares it to the suffering experienced by the Syrian people. Ben tries to follow the rules of life imposed by Mustapha.
