Love across the battle lines?
Michael’s family hate immigrants. Mina is an Afghan refugee. Awkward....
Michael’s into graphic design and hanging out with his friends. He’s not too sure where he stands on immigration, the issue that’s tearing his town apart. But he knows one thing for sure: he really likes his new classmate Mina. So it’s too bad that Mina is a Muslim refugee. This is definitely not a meet-the-family moment. Since Michael was small, his parents have dragged him to anti-immigration rallies. He’s gone along with it – but is it time to make a stand?
As tensions rise and lines are drawn, they’ve all got to decide what they want their world to look like.
