At 14 Jalalludien was taken from a prison in Afghanistan and brought to the UK. Now, on the cusp of turning 18 and severely traumatised by his past, he has trouble in school and is on the verge of being put out of foster care. Trapped between his childhood’s religious indoctrination and his new life, the only way to process his dark past is by breaking from traditions and paint something that is forbidden in the culture he comes from. Another Paradise tells the story of a boy becoming a man in a life he didn’t expect to live.
