Synopsis

In this wonderful film from the African country of Chad, a family is torn apart when a father suddenly leaves his wife and two sons, Amine (the younger) and Tahir (the older). With their mother unable to cope with the shock, the boys set off to find their father, having to travel further than they could ever have imagined in the attempt. This is a gentle and thought-provoking film but one that is also highly entertaining.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
