“The most moving piece of cinema I saw all year” — filmmaker Bong Joon-ho (Parasite)
A Grand Jury Prize-winner at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, this animated documentary tells an amazing tale of the struggle for survival and the search for belonging. In his adopted home of Denmark, refugee Amin confronts the story he’s kept hidden for twenty years—his family’s escape from Afghanistan, his death-defying journey to Western Europe, and his coming out as a gay man.
