Torabi and Enayatullah star as themselves as the film recounts their journey as Afghan refugees from Pakistan to London. Winterbottom's most political film is powerful and effectively balances the personal issues and travails of its characters with the larger issues it illustrates. The lack of a script (they used mostly outlines) hurts the film in the end, but the performances of the mostly non-professional cast balance that weakness. Shot in documentary style on digital video.
