The Crossing
Official Section

Bâbak fled his native country, Afghanistan, almost 20 years ago and came to live in Brussels, where he sought to forget his past, his family, his craft as a gifted calligrapher and his homeland. Now retired from a menial job of cleaning railway cars, the solitary Bâbak finds his path crossed by a stranger called SârBân who shows up in the kitchen of the shabby boarding house that same morning. The day gradually becomes for Bâbak a day of reckoning with his past and whit the nightmare that cut him off from who he really is.
