Rooftop Refugee

2017, 30 minutes

Short film about a Refugee threatening to commit suicide.

Rooftop Refugee is a comedy that follows Martha (40) as she attends her daughter Kylie’s primary school performance. Martha thinks that coping with her recently divorced husband Phillip and his new girlfriend Nilou is going to be the biggest difficulty she will have to face today. She is wrong. The event is thrown into utter chaos by Mehdi, a young Syrian refugee child who is threatening to jump from the school rooftop. And since it is much more exciting to solve other peoples’ problems than your own, the parents who have gathered themselves next to Martha on the schoolyard have one mission: To make the boy come down the roof. And even more important: to spread their views on the world.
