Synopsis

Having fled Iraq, 9-year-old Ali arrives in Britain. Unable to speak English he is shunned by those around him. He builds a plane from objects discarded by the locals and makes a special friend along the way. A visually driven lyrical tale that explores loss, the sweetness of hope and the realisation of dreams.
