A gripping, human tale of survival. What happens to the millions of migrants who flee conflict zones to find new homes in the cities of the West? In the case of the Tamil family at the centre of this Palme d’Or winner, conflict is never far behind. Once settled in the outskirts of Paris, they must use their hard-won survival skills to navigate their crime-ridden housing complex and answer the question: what makes a home?
