17 min.DK/DocumentaryChildren's films

Asmir is 10 years old and a Muslim. He uses his faith to learn to know himself better - because who is he after all? He should always be doing good to others, that he knows, but he finds it hard not to be a troublemaker at times. At a school play, he is handed the opportunity to play a troublemaker but it is hard to remember all the lines and everything he has to do on stage but even harder it is to get to know yourself. That might take as long time as a 100 years Asmir believes.
