In the final part of Peter Kosminsky’s powerful drama The State, Jalal (Sam Otto) is given a new role by Isis, and witnesses barbaric punishments and mock executions to feed its propaganda machine. With the noose tightening around him, he decides to risk his own safety to help Ibitsam (Maisa Abd Elhadi) and Narin (Angelina-Rain Zou’bi) escape.
As Ushna’s (Shavani Cameron) commitment deepens, Shakira’s (Ony Uhiara) concern that Isaac (Nana Agyeman-Bediako) is being readied for frontline battle makes her contemplate the unthinkable – whether there is any way out of The State.
