SYNOPSIS: Gritty, shocking and unforgettable, A Prophet is an epic crime masterpiece that can't be missed.

A nineteen-year-old troublemaker starts a six year sentence in a notorious prison, a concrete hell where violence is the only language understood. Taken under the wing of a powerful mafia boss, he is initiated into a vicious and brutal way of life. As the years pass, he evolves from petty crime to establing a criminal empire of his own. (-BFI.)

Winner of the 2010 BAFTA Award for Best Film Not In The English Language.
