Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2021
When 8-year-old Kati stows away in her father's delivery van, Faruk must juggle his responsibilities as a single dad while holding down his first job in a new country. They make a great team travelling from delivery to delivery together. But as their relationship deepens, a brush with covert racism tests the bond between a father and daughter in this heartfelt short drama about family, immigration and overcoming prejudice.
