|Dheepan – Trailer
Dheepan is a Tamil freedom fighter, a Tiger. In Sri Lanka, the Civil War is reaching its end, and defeat is near. Dheepan decides to flee, taking with him two strangers â€“ a woman and a little girl â€“ hoping that they will make it easier for him to claim asylum in Europe. Arriving in Paris, the â€˜familyâ€™ moves from one temporary home to another until Dheepan finds work as the caretaker of a run-down housing block in the suburbs. He works to build a new life and a real home for his â€˜wifeâ€™ and his â€˜daughterâ€™, but the daily violence he confronts quickly reopens his war wounds, and Dheepan is forced to reconnect with his warriorâ€™s instincts to protect the people he hopes will become his true family.
