Cinema Italian Style

Years ago the war in Afghanistan separated two sons, who escaped to Europe, from their mother, who didn't. Now she doesn't—or won't—recognize them in this tense drama based on a true story.

Ismail escaped from Afghanistan as a child, and now lives in Europe with his brother Hassan. While their mother no longer recognizes her sons today, she has never stopped hoping to hear from them. When he begins to receive a series of increasingly concerning phone calls, Ismail must investigate his family's destiny and the senselessness of a distant war.
