Featuring Toby Jones and an original soundtrack from Mercury Award winning Brit nominees Alt-J, comes a story that defines our times. From a world hidden from view, this is a film about teenagers cast away from their homes who now learn to survive, at any cost, here in the UK.

‘Leave to Remain’ is a provocative coming of age story about a young Afghan boy who’s arrival sets off a chain of events that jeopardises the future of those closest to him. Unwittingly he plays an unimaginable game of chance where winning and getting Leave to Remain to stay in the UK is not always what it seems, and all hope hinges on just how good a story he can tell.
