Seen 2 February 2009

A low key story of a professor of economics encounter with illegal immigrants to the US. Walter has become jaded with his career and the moment he stumbled into the young couple who had occupied his apartment in New York, his life took a different path.

At first, the couple was allowed to stay for a while until they can find another place but slowly, a friendship develops and Walter became more involved with their lives when the young man, Tariq was detained for overstaying.

Walter discovers again a passion for life through Tariq and his girlfriend, Zainab as well as Muna, Tariq’s mother who came to New York when Tariq was detained.

The emotions are well kept under the skin, just simmering, seldom going beyond boiling point.
