SYNOPSIS

A homeless Nigerian refugee struggles to integrate into Australian society after escaping the clutches of Boko Haram. While living on the streets and on the receiving end of racist taunts from a group of drunken men, a young woman comes to his aid and offers him a place to stay. Struggling with her own heartbreak, she soon finds solace in her unlikely new companion as he opens her up to a world beyond her current life of modelling, parties and social media.


Why not plan a South West adventure at the same time as CinefestOZ? We recommend making accommodation, restaurant and tour bookings early to avoid disappointment. Plan your stay and 'wander out yonder' with Western Australia in Australia’s South West and Your Margaret River.
