Filmmaker Statement

The film is based on a true story from my home town Svolvær in arctic Norway. The first spark came when I heard about a young Syrian refugee who helped his fleeing family with his mobile phone. I immediately thought that the story had the potential to become a film that could encapsulate many different elements of the refugee experience in a direct and human way. I got in contact with the Syrian refugee, talked extensively with him about his experience, and he gave me his blessing to dramatize his story.
