You're Not Home

Ikenna is a fifteen-year-old asylum seeker living at a Direct Provision centre on the outskirts of Limerick, Ireland where an ominous mould has inexplicably surfaced in the room he shares with his older brother, Chima. Navigating the much controversial challenges of poor treatment in such centres, these brothers choose not to report it for fear of facing deportation. However, after Ikenna witnesses a series of disturbing events, he is prompted to request new accommodation; a demand that would only reveal something much more sinister.
