New Trailer and Poster for Swedish Immigration Drama GHABE

New trailer for director Markus Castro's refugee drama.

Sweden has famously taken in more refugees per capita than any other country in Europe. Yet while the Scandinavian nation has been gracious in opening its arms, it hasn't been without its problems with xenophobia rearing its ugly head as it is across the continent.

Director Markus Castro's Ghabe tells the story of a Syrian refugee who finds himself in the scenic surrounds of rural Sweden. When he falls for a local girl, tensions are stirred up between the immigrants and the local community. Adel Darwish, NathaliĆ© Williamsdotter and Ahmad Fadel star.

Ghabe is on US VOD from October 20th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

A Syrian refugee explores the mystical Swedish forests and his own traumatic memories of the war, while battling the local racism and ignoring his over protective cousin, warning him not to endanger his application for residence permit because he is falling in love with a local woman only to find out how deep the racism really goes.
