“An unapologetically cynical coming-of-age tale, traversing the grey areas of morality and circumstance.” — WF
Gaza is a 14-year-old boy who lives on the Aegean coast of Turkey. Together with his domineering father, he helps smuggle refugees into Europe, giving them temporary shelter and scant food until they attempt their crossing. Gaza dreams of escaping this life of crime, but can’t help being drawn into a dark world of immorality, exploitation and human suffering. Can you avoid becoming a monster when you’ve been raised by one?
Adapted from the award-winning novel of the same name by Hakan Günday, Daha is the gripping story of a boy that gets to grow up in a world where there is no room for innocence.
