313 is a 2008 British film that tells the story of a troubled 17-year-old Layth Ali (Inayat Kanji) who finds himself on the wrong side of the law following the death of his older brother, and soon discovers his only way out is his hard-line orthodox Principal, Hakimi - Head of the Islamic College. Layth is given two weeks to complete an assignment on a subject that he refuses to believe in The Mahdi. The reluctant student seeks the help of Mohsin (Abbas Virjee), an unusual, mystical Shaykh, who catapults him into a world of spiritual discovery, faith and understanding.
