 Filmet gjennom ett år i Afghanistan viser dokumentaren The Takeover hvordan Taliban etablerer en islamsk stat basert på deres strenge fortolkning av sharialovene. I filmen møter vi både kvinner som kjemper imot og for Taliban. Og gjennom en unik tilgang ser vi hvordan menneskerettighetene innskrenkes mens Taliban feirer og drar til Norge for å sanke internasjonal støtte. Filmen er regissert og filmet av Anders Hammer som har bodd seks år i Afghanistan og arbeidet der årlig siden 2006.
