Away together

Away Together

10-year old Ayah follows her father to New Mexico after leaving the refugee camp in Pakistan where she was born and raised.

Forced to go on a camping trip organized by a local youth worker, Ayah leaves the campsite after a misunderstanding.

As she gets lost in the mountains, she connects to a memory she didn’t know she had. Somehow, as she explores this foreign place, she comes closer to finding her own story.
