Starting From Zero

Best Feature Documentary
Three refugees are caught in the crosshairs following the U.S. military’s sudden withdrawal from Afghanistan. Fleeing for their lives, they are transported to Qatar and stationed in the most paradoxical of refugee camps — a luxury compound built for guests of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. A female boxer, a journalist, and a TV personality find themselves uprooted from their lives, separated from their homeland and family, and stuck in bureaucratic limbo until they can get settled elsewhere. The film follows them in the camp and on their eventual journey to Buffalo, NY, Seattle, WA, and Berlin, Germany, where they must restart their lives and confront the deferment of their dreams.
