has a large portion of reality, ends poorly.

I wouldn't call Mounir troubled, for someone who had lost his family alongside his house he is surprisingly sane, the scenes are just breathtaking, performance is done well by most of the cast.

it is nice to watch especially if you know or have ever met a refugee in your life and would like what kinds of horrible things they go through going to a country with completely different culture, the final parts of the movie however showed that they weren't expecting to end it so everything had to be wrapped up, and it was done in a way that stole the charm of the movie away sadly,

would recommend to watch, just watch out for that ending, it will catch you off guard.
