A promising young musician is separated from his Syrian family and stuck on a remote Scottish island while he awaits the fate of his asylum request.
On a fictional remote Scottish island, a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. Among them is Omar (Amir El-Masry), a young Syrian musician burdened by the weight of his grandfather’s oud, which he has carried all the way from his homeland.
Ben Sharrock’s film is a ‘witty, poignant, marvellously composed and shot, moving and even weirdly gripping’ (The Guardian) observation of the refugee experience.
