When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he is forced to flee the country with his wife and two young daughters. Capturing the family’s journey firsthand, Fazili documents their harrowing trek across numerous borders revealing the danger and uncertainty facing refugees seeking asylum juxtaposed with the unbreakable love shared amongst the family on the run.
„There are many films about the current refugee crisis but I’ve not seen a documentary quite as intimate as this one… Fazili and his wife are both filmmakers, so they have filmmakers’ eyes. They catch moments of true cinematic beauty, but these moments stand out as grace notes to an otherwise harsh existence.”

„A valuable, first-hand refugees’ story… Full of social and political urgency… A family’s joint testimony, heartfelt and heartbreaking, particular yet hauntingly representative.”
Caryn James, The Hollywood Reporter
