In EXODUS, the opening night film at this year’s Go¨teborg Film Festival, and the poignant feature debut from Swedish filmmaker Abbe Hassan, two worlds collide when Sam, a professional “people smuggler,” meets Amal, a 12-year-old girl whose family has gone missing in the Syrian war. Amal is on her way to Sweden, where she believes her family has taken refuge, and Sam - troubled by the thought of letting her make the dangerous journey alone - reluctantly agrees to chaperone. Together, the grisled Sam and the witty but vulnerable Amal travel through Europe in search of family and freedom, finding both in each other along the way.
