Hisham Zaman's accomplished debut feature - which won the Dragon Award at Gothenburg Film Festival - is, at heart, a coming-of-age story but it also shines a light on illegal migration, Europe's forgotten illegal underclass and the concept of honour killings. These issues are built impressively into the framework of the screenplay written by Zaman and Kjell Ola Dahl, so that they prompt the viewer to think about them without overwhelming the central narrative concerning Siyar (Taher Abdullah Taher) and his cross-European odyssey.
