Ben and his family have to move to the nearby city, because an open brown coal pit will swallow their village soon. Ben meets Tariq, a Syrian refugee.

How We Handle Subtitles
Foreign language screenings are presented with English subtitles that will be read over listening devices by a “subtitle reader” for audience members who prefer an English dialogue track.
