With the Civil War reaching its end in Sri Lanka, Dheepan – a Tamil freedom fighter – decides to flee, heading to France with his ‘family’. He hopes that travelling with a woman named Yalini and a 9-year-old child, Illayaal, will strengthen his claim for asylum, despite the three of them being strangers to each other. Upon arrival in Europe, the trio have trouble in adjusting to new surroundings and a different way of life. Illayaal encounters trouble at school, Yalini is unhappy with her place in the community and Dheepan struggles with constant reminders of his old life in the extreme violence all around him. The film is a brutal, uncompromising look at the harsh realities of immigration and won the 2015 Palme d’Or at Cannes.
