Synopsis

12-year-old Mohammed determinedly takes to the streets of Irbid in Jordan, shining shoes every day so he can take care of his family, who have moved there as refugees after the uprising in Syria. Separated from his father and brothers but sharing in their revolutionary passion, Mohammed zealously sings the chants of protest songs, entertaining his clients as he polishes their shoes. Mohammed’s infectiously energetic spirit offers a hopeful look towards the future yet reminds us of the struggle and violence he has witnessed and the burden of responsibility he shoulders at such a young age.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
