Sinopsis / Synopsis

Aamir, de 13 años, ha huido de su hogar y ha sido separado de su familia solo para quedarse solo en el mayor campo de refugiados no oficial de Europa. Cuando él se hace amigo de Katlyn, una voluntaria británica bien intencionada pero poco estricta, se convierte en la última esperanza de Aamir para la salvación. Inspirado en hechos reales, este corto nominado al BAFTA fue filmado en el campamento de refugiados de la "Selva" de Calais por Robbie Ryan (American Honey, Fish Tank) con la ayuda y la colaboración de las comunidades locales de refugiados.

13 year old Aamir has fled his home and been separated from his family only to be stranded alone in the largest unofficial refugee camp in Europe. When he is befriended by Katlyn, a well meaning but thinly stretched British volunteer, she becomes Aamir's last hope for salvation. Inspired by true events, this BAFTA nominated short was shot on location in the Calais ‘Jungle’ refugee camp by Robbie Ryan (American Honey, Fish Tank) with the help and collaboration of local refugee communities.
