Synopsis

Asylum focuses on three young Kurdish refugees fleeing political persecution by smuggling themselves into England. Their future threatened as their genuine claims become buried in red tape, they seek refuge in a church. Despite their Muslim faith, a Catholic priest, Father Michael (Dai Bradley), feels bound to champion their cause. As the situation becomes the focus of escalating media and police attention, not only does the dramatic conclusion demonstrate the limits of human compassion but also the indirect cruelties of the entire system.
