Set on a Scottish island, four men are waiting for a decision from the government on their claims for asylum. While they wait they try to come to terms with their temporary new home. This is a timely release and as one reviewer wrote: “the film is a reminder that the real boats crossing to the UK are carrying real people. People with families, hobbies, traditions and songs.” This is a film that urges us to recognise the complexities of a world that is so hard to make sense of.
This film is programmed by Buxton Film and features no trailers.
