This short film tells the story of Mohammed Alsaleh, a young Syrian refugee granted asylum in Canada in 2014. After fleeing torture and imprisonment by the Assad regime, he is rebuilding his life. Mohammed counsels newly-arrived Syrian refugee families with the same Vancouver-based NGO that aided him during his own resettlement process. Like Mohammed, these families have left loved ones behind and are struggling to adapt to a new land, finding resilience and hope for a new beginning.

Mohammed Alsaleh is stellar in her performance, and brings a lot of punch to the execution. Ending was surprising in a good way. Good reviews here are definitely justified.

All the actors made the characters breathe an essence which is integral to the script and the director captured it the best way possible. But Mohammed Alsaleh is definitely the soul of this movie.

Arguably this should not be a difficult film to review. It is nothing less than brilliant. The story, the direction, the musical score, the casting, the acting, the dialog. Brilliant!!! Just brilliant!
