    • Synopsis
    • Toby Jones (The Hunger Games, Frost/Nixon, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) stars as a British teacher looking after a group of teenage asylum seekers. Among them is Omar, waiting for the most important decision in his life: can he stay in the UK, or must he return to Afghanistan and, perhaps, his death? When the arrival of a boy from his village threatens to tip the balance against him, Omar must make the right choice: between telling the authorities a good story and telling the unbelievable truth.
