Bilal: A New Breed of Hero
In a dreamlike vision, mysterious dark riders mounted on their demonic black horses bear down towards a village. Somewhere close by, little Bilal gallops on his hobbyhorse playing a masked warrior. He always wanted to be a warrior! The horses are closer now. Are they real? Or is it Bilal’s wild imagination? In this very moment, Bilal’s dream turns into a nightmare as these dark riders kill Hamama his mother and capture him along with his sister, Ghufaira. Captives Bilal & Ghufaira are sold as slaves to Umayya, the wealthiest merchant in all of Arabia. Bilal never forgets that day, and this nightmare will haunt him for years to come. But the echoes of his mother’s gentle voice will remind that in order to break free of the chains that enslave him, he must be willing to choose his own destiny.
