Mobarak is an Afghan refugee with a temporary residence visa living in the small New South Wales town of Young. Molly is the daughter of a supportive local woman. This amiable documentary follows their interaction, against the backdrop of Mobarak's threatened expulsion. The townspeople featured are light years away in their responses from the expedient hostility of Australian PM John Howard, and the film provides a helpfully personal and everyday slant on a challenging global reality.
