When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he is forced to flee with his wife and two young daughters. Capturing their uncertain journey with only his family’s cellphones, Fazili shows firsthand the dangers facing refugees seeking asylum and the love shared amongst a family on the run.
