    A dozen years after his last visit, Jeebleh returns to his beloved Mogadiscio to see old friends. He is accompanied by his son-in-law, Malik, a journalist intent on covering the region's ongoing turmoil.

    When Bella learns of the murder of her beloved half-brother by political extremists in Mogadiscio, she’s in Rome.

    Jeebleh is returning to Mogadiscio, Somalia, for the first time in 20 years. But this is not a nostalgia trip - his last residence there was a jail cell. And who could feel nostalgic for a city like this? U.S. troops have come and gone, and the decimated city is ruled by clan warlords and patrolled by qaat-chewing gangs who shoot civilians to relieve their adolescent boredom.
