Son, A

When driving home from southern Tunisia, a family's car is hit by a stray bullet during an ambush by an armed group. Puncturing the liver of young Aziz, they urgently need medical attention. At a local hospital, the need for a transplant uncovers a secret that risks Aziz's life should a donor not be found in time. But this is only the beginning of the unexpected twists in a story so deftly crafted that it offers a probing look at Tunisian society's entrenched social and legal realities. Director Mehdi Barsaoui's A SON heralds the filmmaker as a bold new talent to watch.
