Description

The seas are filled with migrants risking their lives on perilous crossings; Europe is engulfed by xenophobia and fear. In the cities and towns, in the schools and shops, strange children are starting to appear: enigmatic and unnerving, they disappear like ghosts, causing uproar.

Amid mounting paranoia, Khaled, a young teenager from a war-torn Middle Eastern country, by chance meets Karolina in a discount store in Brussels. She buys him a red suitcase, and they part ways: Karolina to both mourn and search for her missing son, whose laptop betrays his entanglement with extremist groups; Khaled to head south, against the flow of other refugees – travelling with urgent intent, desperately protecting the contents of his suitcase.

At once a ghost story, a morality tale and a quest narrative, From Another World is a striking reflection on loss, grief and the struggle to brave love in a world seized by fury.
