Every year, many lone children come to the UK from war-zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan. They’ve left behind desperate situations and arrive with few documents or evidence but full of hope and expectations.
This is the story of Hamedullah Hassany. As a young teenager he fled to the UK from Afghanistan but when he turned 18 he was detained and then deported back to Afghanistan. Told with haunting video diary images, this film shows what happened next and his struggle to survive.
“A bold, original documentary comparable to Winterbottom’s In This World.”
“Shines a spotlight on key issues.”
Dazed and Confused
“A very important film.”
