In the northern mountains of Lebanon, a Syrian man hoping to reunite with family torn apart by war encounters two Palestinian children whose own stories of exile provide a glimpse into the uncertainties he must face as a refugee.

Director's Statement

Exile has long influenced by work as a filmmaker and when moved to Lebanon in 2011 and saw the growing number of refugees -- both Palestinian refugees who had already been living in Lebanon since the 1940s and the new influx of Syrian refugees who were coming because of the war -- I began to reflect on how this crisis would impact the future of the refugees and the neighboring countries that hosted them. This is how the idea for Transit Game took shape.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Youth, World Cinema, War, Human Rights.
