On the losing side of a civil war in Sri Lanka, a Tamil soldier poses as the husband and father of two other refugees in order to escape their ravaged homeland. Arriving in France, the makeshift “family” sets about establishing a new life-only to find themselves once again embroiled in violence on the mean streets of Paris. Dheepan is a heartrending saga of three strangers united by circumstance and struggle and also a powerful depiction of the immigrant experience.
