De Ontmoeting - Kooi

Director: Rumi Kaul
When Omar sees how his sweet little brother hardens in the local football cage, it opens his eyes to the harsh group dynamics. Will he manage to get his brother out of the cage?
Omar (13) spends his days in an iron football cage with local friends. The group is tight, but the boys are also callous to each other. Challenging your friends is the norm. Vulnerability is punished. When one day his younger brother Abdul wants to join them, Omar suddenly sees the reality of the cage with new eyes. His usually sweet little brother turns into an aggressive kid and his friends also show another side of themselves.
