21 Miles Film

21 Miles Film - This is the story of one man’s battle to get to his son, the longing for a dream and its juxtaposition with the misery of the migrant situation. It tells of the human costs of political failings, rising nationalism, immigrant phobia and the sheer scale of people seeking a better life elsewhere.

"21 MILES is a moving and important film. Through the heart-breaking story of a Tunisian man trying to reach his son in the UK, the documentary shines a light on the everyday struggles of migrants and refugees desperate to escape impossible situations."
