15-year-old Saeed from Afghanistan took a boat in Izmir to come to Europe. Just off the Turkish coast, Saeed strands on a Greek island called Tilos. Fleeing a traumatic past, he is catapulted into a community with only 400 inhabitants - and one bus.
Saeed soon discovers that he is not the only one looking for a new home here. The passengers on THE ISLAND BUS come from over a dozen countries, and also have stories of dislocation to tell.
Lots of sheep, bees wax and chats in the alleyways were involved in the making of this warm-hearted documentary which adds an Aegean twist to the eternal question of how to be happy no matter what.
