Last Hijack

A true tale of survival in Somalia told from the pirate's perspective, using animation with documentary storytelling to explore how one Somali pirate, Mohamed, came to live such a brutal and dangerous existence. Animated re-enactments of his memories, dreams and fears from are juxtaposed with raw footage from his everyday life. Somalia is the worldwide capital of piracy, and Mohamed is one of its most experienced pirates. But in his homeland, a failed state, he is just another middle-aged man trying to make ends meet. Somali pirates face increasing scrutiny and stigmatization at home and abroad, and now that Mohamed is engaged, his parents and in-laws pressure him to change his ways before the wedding. Mohamed senses that the golden age of piracy may be coming to an end, and with pressure mounting to provide for his loved ones, he must decide whether to risk everything for one last hijack.
