Still 2

This observational documentary tells the inspiring story of two former asylum seekers Natasha and Minahil as they prepare to sit their State Exams.

Natasha Maimba and Minahil Sarfraz met whilst growing up as asylum seekers in Direct Provision in Ireland. Both spent years in limbo, not knowing if they would be able to stay in the country they were making home. Their mothers were not allowed to work and were denied basic citizenship rights.

Finally granted leave to remain, ‘Leaving Limbo’ follows the journey of these articulate, intelligent and funny young women as they prepare to sit their state exams and plan for their future.
