Apprentice

Back to listing
Aiman, 28, lives modestly with his sister and works as a prison guard. His not entirely selfless zeal attracts the attention of the executioner, who is soon to retire. He takes Aiman under his wing to teach him the rules of a good hanging... The third feature from Junfeng Boo won the Grand Prix at the last Fribourg International Film Festival.
