A Film by Hassan Fazili

When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he is forced to flee with his wife and two young daughters. Capturing their uncertain journey, Fazili shows firsthand the dangers facing refugees seeking asylum and the love shared between a family on the run.

"A documentary that feels like a modern-day message in a bottle, an urgent appeal for help from a family that's still searching for a home." - Scott Tobias, Variety

"A valuable, first-hand refugees' story." - Carryn James, Hollywood Reporter
