Synopsis / Plot
Magomed is a thoughtful 10-year-old boy from Chechnya, who has just arrived in Denmark to seek asylum. His father has been both threatened and tortured by the Russians, and now the small family lives in the hope of being allowed to stay. While their case is being dealt with, Magomed goes to school, where a teacher quickly notices the bright but shy boy, who slowly starts to make new friends and learn from the teaching. But his new life with new friends takes on a dark and heartbreaking turn when the decision about the family's application for asylum comes with both good and bad news. And Magomed must try to come to terms with his father's story - and with the fact that he might soon be losing him again.
