Twelve-year-old Ebrahim lives with his mother and five siblings in the middle of the desert. His father and elder brother have disappeared, and the responsibility of looking after his family lies on Ebrahim’s shoulders. Asteroid is a dazzlingly beautiful depiction of togetherness, family ties, and responsibility, set in Iran’s incredible landscape. Asteroid has echoes of lauded films such as Lilla mamma and Capernaum.
