Touching, Funny.....Brilliant.
29 March 2002 | by gibranmSee all my reviews

I saw this series as late night movies and I was half asleep when it aired. When it finished it left me in tears that it ended the way and about the way it ended. We are being taken on a roller-coaster ride with two illegal immigrants in Sweden, one is a 40 year old Iranian man and the other is a 15 year old Somalian boy. Through this we are shown what friendship is all about as well as realising our dreams. I have my VCR ready to tape it next time it comes on.
