Love crosses boundaries in this emotional short about the young, embattled Alia (Baria Shafaq), a young Afghan girl living in Dublin, who refuses to enter an arranged marriage and instead begins a relationship with local mechanic Danny (Ryan Andrews). Director Claire Dix skilfully tells this heartfelt story about empowerment and individual choice against the backdrop of Ireland’s intercultural landscape.
