Salvation Army is structured in a diptych: the first episode chronicles Abdellah’s teenage years, when he comes to understand, all at once, his sexuality, social codes, inhibitions, the brutality of patriarchy and the cruelty of poverty. The second half follows the young adult Abdellah as a penniless university graduate who travels on a scholarship to Geneva, where he must negotiate the treacherous sexual, racial, political, and social trappings of being a young homosexual Moroccan in Europe.
