From the award winning director of "A PROPHET", "RUST & BONE" and "THE BEAT MY HEART SKIPPED" comes the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or Winner that offers "THE PLEASURE OF CAPTIVATING STORYTELLING WITH AN IRRESISTIBLE HUMAN PULSE" (Screen International). In Sri Lanka, the Civil War is reaching its end, and defeat is near. Dheepan decides to flee, taking with him two strangers - a woman and a little girl - hoping that they will make it easier for him to claim asylum in Europe. Arriving in Paris, the ‘family’ moves from one temporary home to another until Dheepan finds work as the caretaker of a run-down housing block in the suburbs. He works to build a new life and a real home for his ‘wife’ and his ‘daughter’, but the daily violence he confronts quickly reopens his war wounds, and Dheepan is forced to reconnect with his warrior’s instincts to protect the people he hopes will become his true family.
