A powerful drama based on real experiences Ė a group of Refugees in Edinburgh do what they must to survive. Despite the watchful eye of the security services they have found a way to get on - but Ahmedís arrival changes everything for ever.

Ahmed believes in truth - a belief forged under torture Ė he now seeks asylum but the courts donít believe him. His quest for proof brings him to Halla. She shares his past and a secret that will destroy the people they both love. When the truth has sustained you, can you ever afford to let it go?.
