See Exodus (dir. Abbe Hassan, Sweden, 2022), a gripping new drama about the global migration crisis as seen through the eyes of a shifty smuggler and the innocent young girl he takes under his wing, on May 15!

At the Istanbul international airport, Amal, a 12-year-old refugee from Syria, breaks free from the people holding her captive and collides with 40-year-old Sam, a professional human smuggler whose operation has just gone wrong. Though Sam is initially reluctant to save her, they soon find themselves speeding away from airport together in a taxi, where Sam learns of Amal’s hopes to be reunited with her sisters in Romania. As the pair join forces on a harrowing journey first by inflatable boat across the Black Sea, and on from Greece to Sweden, an unexpectedly warm friendship develops between the quick-witted young girl and her jaded traveling partner. And amid the peril of their surroundings, the journey becomes both their survival and their awakening.

A warm-hearted story of survival and friendship inspired by Abbe Hassan’s experience leaving war-torn Beirut for Sweden as a child, Exodus has been hailed as a “tender thriller” (Deadline) exploring the joy of human connection amid the heartbreaking circumstances of the Syrian Refugee Crisis.
