Religion as an excuse

3

The student uses the story of a deep teenage crisis as a metaphor for telling how religious fanaticism creeps into society and uses the faith as an excuse and justification to claim privileges and to take advantage of other people, especially the weaker ones.
A society that often, instead of revealing the fanatic and reacting, lets himself be fooled and even comes to defend the fanatic from those who can identify him and try to stop him.
The movie is quite simple but it  perfectly hits the target.
