The Pirates of Somalia

Description
When rookie writer and proud Canadian Jay Bahadur has a chance encounter with his journalist idol, he decides to uproot his life in the name of research for his first book. Abandoning his comfortable life, he moves to Somalia to investigate a still-unfolding situation with pirates off the country’s coast. It’s 2008 and the cargo vessel MV Faina has just been hijacked. Based on a true story, Dabka follows a naïve young journalist’s headlong dive into a country he has no business being in. A free agent without government support or a publishing deal, Jay bucks conventions to conduct a raw, on the ground investigation.

Despite an excellent secondary cast and an interesting story, Dabka fails in its aspirations due almost entirely to its own smugness.
