Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym), a 36-year-old high-achieving academic, grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband. Recounted mostly through animation to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen — his close friend and high-school classmate, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Through heartfelt interviews between Jonas and Amin, Flee tells an unforgettable story of self-discovery. Showing how it is only possible to carve out a future by confronting the past, and the universal truth that only when you stop fleeing from who you are, you can find the true meaning of home.

"There have been countless movies about the immigration crisis, but none of them have the sheer ingenuity of Flee. In Danish filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen’s animated documentary, an Afghan refugee recounts his 20-year survival story, and the dazzling storytelling goes there with him." - Indiewire
