Omar, a charismatic Afghan teenager, is at the precarious juncture of having his refugee status decided. The arrival of a boy from back home threatens to change everything. Forced into a position where the outcome may be the difference between life and death, his only options are to tell the unbelievable truth or to tell a good story? For Omar, and thousands like him, who arrive alone and scared on our shores each year, the asylum system is a cruel game of chance. Screening as part of Refugee Week. There will be a discussion on the issues raised after the 7.30pm screening on Thurs 18 June.
