Synopsis

12-year-old Ahmad, a Syrian war refugee, just arrived in the Netherlands. Ahmad would love to make Dutch friends, but he doesn’t dare to make the first move. Most striking about Ahmad is his long hair. It’s long for a reason. It’s his way of giving something back for all the help he and his family have received from the Netherlands. While Ahmad’s hair grows, so does his confidence. Will Ahmad succeed to make friends in the Netherlands?
