To escape the civil war in Sri Lanka, a former soldier, a young woman and a little girl pose as a family. They end up settling in a housing project outside Paris. They barely know one another, but try to build a life together as the threat of escalating gang violence looms over their lives.
From acclaimed director Jacques Audliard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone) and winner of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or, Dheepan is a powerful tale of love and social integration and the overwhelming effects of war.
