Based on the book "The pirates of Somalia: inside their hidden world" by Jay Bahadur.
In 2008, rookie journalist Jay Bahadur forms a half-baked plan to embed himself among the pirates of Somalia. Though dangerously out of his depth, he ultimately succeeds in providing the first close-up look into who these men are, how they live, and the forces that drive them.

Interesting film well worth watching! Based on a true story.

I found it very action filled and, as in most situations that make front page news, shows another side of the story. This young man may have been extremely "crazy" to try to get his story by going to Somalia but his book and this movie were fascinating.

So, a kid with no training in journalism sets off for the most dangerous country in the world to launch his career even though he has no affiliation with any news organization and all he knows about Somalia is a paper he wrote about it as an 18-year-old. Then, he becomes the wor'd's most renown expert. Put that aside, and watch this movie for the cultural awareness that immersing oneself in another culture brings. Very little onscreen violence.
