An animated documentary telling the true story about a man’s need to confront his past in order to truly have a future. Amin arrived as an unaccompanied minor in Denmark from Afghanistan. Today, at 36, he is a successful academic and is getting married to his long-time boyfriend. A secret he has been hiding for over 20 years threatens to ruin the life he has built for himself. For the first time, he is sharing his story with his close friend.
“Luck and loss can’t be disentangled, and that may be the meaning of home that this patient, humane film arrives at.” — A.O. Scott, New York Times
“The film, heightened by haunting, sometimes surreal animated sequences, helps us understand why solitude threatened to be his permanent state, and how a refugee’s flight can devastate the strongest spirit and shut down a tender one.” — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
