Omar, a charismatic Afghan teenager, is at the point of having his refugee status decided, when the arrival of a boy from back home threatens to change everything.
Forced into a position where the outcome may be the difference between life and death, his only options are to tell the unbelievable truth or to tell a good story?
For Omar, and thousands like him, the asylum system is a cruel game of chance. Based on real-life stories, Leave to Remain is a coming of age drama that depicts a world hidden from view.
