Winner of the 75th anniversary prize at Cannes. A young boy and an adolescent girl, who have travelled to Belgium from Africa, pit their invincible friendship against the cruel conditions of their exile. Lokita and Tori are bound together by ties as strong as blood, and the prospect of separation is unthinkable to them, but will they be allowed to stay together in their new country? 

Introduced by Dr Niroshan Ramachandran. Niroshan is a lecturer in criminology at Edge Hill University. His research is primarily focused on social protection for asylum seekers and refugees in host countries, including his doctoral thesis, ‘The Self and The System: Social Protection Experiences of Asylum Seekers and Refugees Living in Glasgow’,
