What is currently on at The Civic (V959)

The Initiate

A British couple are seized by Somali pirates. In East London, a Somali taxi driver decides to rescue them. Meeting disbelief with determination, he dismisses his wife's fears and flies out to negotiate their release. Speeding from the banks of the Thames to the now unfamiliar world of his homeland, he confronts the family he left behind and the bravado of the defiant men he once called brothers. A thrilling tale of altruism, greed, and the search for how to belong.
