Amin Nawabi (pseudonym), a successful 36-year-old academic, has been harbouring a painful secret for 20 years. Its revelation could threaten the life he has built with his fiancé. The story of the extraordinary journey of a child refugee from Afghanistan is told for the first time by Amín to his close friend and high school classmate, filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen, who, to protect Amín’s true identity, conveys it to us mainly through film animation. Based on a heartfelt conversation between Jonas and Amin, Escape follows a fascinating journey of self-discovery. It shows us that we can only build our future if we can come to terms with our past, and that we will only know the true meaning of home if we stop running away from ourselves.
