“A delicate portrait of devastation.” –Variety

As family man Ridah nears retirement, he focuses all his hopes and ambitions onto teenage son Sami and his impending university entrance exams. But Sami, who suffers severe migraines, has grown increasingly distant and detached. Only too late does Ridah discover that his boy has made a devastating, life-altering choice. Dear Son is a timely portrait of a fractured bond between father and son told with subtlety and grace.
