Shoot On Sight is a fictional story based on a London Police order to shoot suspected terrorists after the July 7th 2005 London bombings, that resulted in racial profiling.

The film is a thrilling and riveting drama that unfolds the turmoil in the life of Tariq Ali, a Muslim police officer at Scotland Yard. Commander Ali, born in Lahore, is tasked to investigate the police shooting of a suspected Muslim terrorist on the London Underground. Distrusted by both his superiors in the police, and his fellow Muslims, he finds his inquiry hampered from all sides. When evidence surfaces pointing to the slain man's innocence, as well as the existence of a terrorist cell operating in his own backyard, Tariq must face the realization that sometimes, the right decision is the hardest one to make.
