Reunited

Show trailer
A Syrian family on the run lands in three different corners of the planet. Canada, Turkey – and the Danish city of Assens. Here, a new struggle begins against bureaucracy for the right to be reunited.

When the married couple Rana and Muhkles are forced to escape from the civil war in Syria, the small family is scattered to different corners of the planet. She ends up in Assens in Denmark, he in Canada. In the meantime, their two young sons are still stuck in Turkey. Rana is now fighting a lonely struggle to have her children join her in Denmark, but the prospects are hopeless in a rigid and opaque system, where people have to fight to just be heard. Will they succeed in being reunited? Through small everyday moments, Skype calls and home videos, the director Mia Jargil portrays a family torn apart by war – and their insistence on the right to be together. For even though the months go by and the longed-after reunion is drawing out, the dream of a shared life for the family lives on. 'Reunited' is a heartfelt and compassionate account of the refugees who are literally caught between two worlds. And at the same time it is a frightening look at an almost Kafkaesque bureaucracy, where even the best intentions are lost in case files and telephone queues.
