Helping someone else to bury your own issues

This movie focuses on a young girl trying to help an asylum seeker find a way of getting permanent residency in her country, the question is why does she decide to help? With troubles of her own, she may be able to hide them while she tries to help someone else. Until she slips up. We feel the emotion and suffocation the man must feel as he is running out of options to look after himself and his daughter. Great performances from the two main leads and I look forward to their future work. Give this is a watch if you enjoy a tale of struggle and belief of coming out to a better situation on the other side.
