OMAR, A CHARISMATIC AFGHAN TEENAGER, IS AT THE PRECARIOUS JUNCTURE OF HAVING HIS REFUGEE STATUS DECIDED, WHEN THE ARRIVAL OF A BOY FROM BACK HOME THREATENS TO CHANGE EVERYTHING. FORCED INTO A POSITION WHERE THE OUTCOME MAY BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH, HIS ONLY OPTIONS ARE TO TELL THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUTH OR TO TELL A GOOD STORY? FOR OMAR, AND THOUSANDS LIKE HIM, WHO ARRIVE ALONE AND SCARED TO OUR SHORES EACH YEAR, THE ASYLUM SYSTEM IS A CRUEL GAME OF CHANCE.
