Introducing

Best Film in the Youth Vision Competition. The filmmaker delivers a powerful depiction of forced migration – both from a country and a family – and horrific discrimination, with an observational lens that intrudes into a private space with intelligence and care

Synopsis

Khavaj, a young and hopeful Chechen of MMA (mixed martial arts), was forced to flee his country under threat from his brother, who discovered he was gay. The shock of exile and death threats caused psychogenic aphonia, leaving him unable to speak.
