ALI & THE BALL

Eight-year-old Ali lives with his mother and sister Fatima in a refugee camp. When the guards take away the knitting needles that are so very important to his mother Ali just has to do something. And because he would do anything for his family, Ali hatches a plot involving a ball and a girl on the other side of the barbed wire fence.
