In 2015, Syrians were being relocated by the UN across Scotland.
After hearing that some families were homed on the remote Isle of Bute, filmmaker Laura Wadha decided to make a film about Mounzer, a Syrian barber who settled in a little Scottish village with his family.
Haunted by the ghost of war, he is trying to build a home for himself and his children. The barber shop welcomes locals and soon the community adopts them.
