An Afghan refugee must confront his past in order to have a future.
Amin lives an apparently happy life in Denmark, with a career as a promising academic and a boyfriend he intends to marry. But the shadows of his past haunt him, and in order to move on, Amin must finally tell his story of fleeing Afghanistan as a child, a story he has never told anyone.
The Sundance-selected documentary uses animation to tell the dramatic story, a move that draws us directly into Amin’s world, and places us in the middle of all the impossible decisions refugees have to make on the journey towards a safer life.
