Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym), a 36-year-old high-achieving academic, grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband. Recounted mostly through animation to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen – his close friend and high-school classmate, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Through heartfelt interviews between Jonas and Amin, ‘Flee’ tells an unforgettable story of self-discovery. Showing how only by confronting the past is it possible to carve out a future, and the universal truth that only when you stop fleeing from who you are can you find the true meaning of home.

PLEASE NOTE the film is available both in original language (using audio recordings between Amin Nawabi and director Jonas Poher Rasmussen) with English subtitles and dubbed with an English voice cast (including Riz Ahmed and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) created under the supervision of director Jonas Poher Rasmussen. The dubbed sessions are marked with an ENG tag.
