A war photographer (Hugo Weaving) returns home after traumatic overseas experiences. He’s approached by a South Sudanese refugee with an apparently innocent request, but all is not what it seems. The refugee has experienced trauma too, but may be a war criminal as well as a victim. The film deals sensitively with the tragedy of horrendous civil war, the fear and despair felt by refugees displaced from their homes, and their grief at losing family and loved ones. It highlights the daunting challenges they face once settled in Australia, adjusting to a different society and culture – encountering prejudice, lack of understanding, and diverse emotional and financial difficulties. As the troubled life faced by the refugee and his family unfolds, for a while their situation seems headed for disaster.
