Parvaneh (2012)

Available worldwide

Parvaneh is a young Afghan migrant who lives in a transit center for asylum in the Swiss mountains. The only thing she knows of Switzerland is the countryside and the residential home. Once she hears about her father’s health condition she wants to go to the city to send her entire savings to her homeland. But the city is overwhelming and lacking valid I.D., she cannot wire money, so she must find another way.

What a beautiful movie, it renews my faith in humanity. Very timely, with all that's going on today with refugees!

Well done! A nice introduction to cross-cultural communication, and to understanding teens, too. Subtle and not over-done. I very much enjoyed the film.
