The Refuge

2003 NR

A pair of Kurdish refugees (Fuman Dar and Nabil Elouahabi) seeks shelter in a London church to avoid being deported back to Iraq.

Should he succumb to pressure from his congregation to turn the men over to the authorities, or should he use his power to protect them from a fate that will surely bring death?
