A Sudanese refugee sees a bull he believes is his spiritual totem. So he tries to rescue it.
Martin, a refugee from South Sudan, is struggling to adapt to his new life in Australia.
But one day he sees a bull in the abattoir where he works — and decides that it’s his spiritual totem and takes it home, leading to tensions at his job and with his family.
This strikingly assured dramatic short — which won director Eddy Bell a prestigious directing award at Cannes — features a distinctive narrative, married to elegant directing and a fantastic lead performance by actor Mayik Deng.
Its modern-day take on migration offers a compassionate window into Martin’s inner life and cultural identity, as well as asks important questions about what it means to leave the past behind while embracing the future in front of you.
