An urgent and intimate portrait of a family on the run

After Hassan Fazili’s documentary PEACE IN AFGHANISTAN was shown on Afghan TV in 2015, the Taliban killed the film’s main subject and put a bounty on the director’s head. After being denied asylum in Tajikistan, Fazili and his family decide to seek safety in Europe, setting out on a perilous journey through Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria and Serbia. Desperate for a sense of control over his own life, the director points the camera towards himself, and the result is a remarkably frank, poetic and personal depiction of a journey marked by refugee camps, human traffickers and ever-present uncertainty.
