兩名敘利亞難民男孩獨自生活在土耳其。Jad今年11歲,有個17歲的哥哥Nidal。兩年半前,他們的母親Rana逃到丹麥,希望為孩子們建立一個安全的未來。她原以為孩子們半年內就能到丹麥團聚,但歐洲難民政策阻礙了孩子的行程,Rana頓時不知所措,責怪自己不該拋下孩子先行離開。《破境不重圓》描述一個因戰爭而分裂的家庭,觀眾可體驗在極大壓力下該如何做選擇。

在敘利亞戰爭之前,一家人住在阿勒坡。母親Rana是一名自行開業的醫生,父親Mukhles是一名外科醫生。Mukhles逃往加拿大,申請公民身份希望和家人團聚,但未能如願。

Synopsis

Two Syrian refugee boys are living alone in Turkey. Jad is 11 years old, his brother Nidal is 17. Two and a half years ago, their mother Rana fled to Denmark, hoping to establish a safe future for her children. She was under the impression that the children would be able to come to Denmark within half a year, but the European refugee policy obstructs the move and throws Rana into an existential crisis, that makes her doubt her choice of leaving her children behind. ‘Reunited’ follows a family divided by war, and lets the audience experience the consequences of choices made under huge amounts of pressure. 

 

Before the war in Syria, the family lived in Aleppo. Rana was a doctor with her own clinic. Mukhles, the father, worked as a surgeon. He fled to Canada and like Rana, he has made a plea for citizenship and family reunification, but without any luck. 

 

The family's happy past is seen through the father's own video recordings, while the rest of the family is depicted by an intimate camera, capturing the family's raw, unpolished reality. 

 

Will the family succeed in being reunited? ‘Reunited’ captures the human sacrifices and dilemmas brought upon families by war. Rana and Mukhles state that they feel alienated from their children, even though they skype with them often. They also doubt they can recover the loving feelings towards one another.  

 

Synopsis

An unpolished reality filled with human drama and political undertones. Two children are living alone in Turkey. Mother has fled to Denmark, father to Canada, because of the war in Syria. Everybody is trapped in a Kafkaesque system. Will they succeed in being reunited?
