Amin (a pseudonym), a high-achieving academic, grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon-to-be husband. For the first time, he tells director Jonas Poher Rasmussen – his close friend and high-school classmate – the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Heartfelt interviews recounted through animation tell an unforgettable story of self-discovery.
