Filmen A STRAY handlar om ung somalisk kille i Minneapolis vars väg korsas av en herrelös hund. En spännande och varm film som handlar om kulturkrockar och om utanförskap. A STRAY tävlade i SXSW Film Festival 2016.
In Minneapolis’ large Somali refugee community, Adan (Barkhad Abdirahman from "Captain Phillips") has nowhere to go. His mom kicked him out, and his friends are tired of his headstrong ways. As a last resort, he moves into the mosque, praying for a little help. Surprisingly, God seems to answer. Adan quickly lands a good job, devout friends, and a newfound faith. When Adan nearly hits a stray dog on the job, he’s forced to take it in for a night. But one of his new mosque friends considers the dog impure, and he throws Adan out. With Adan back on the streets, surrounded by his old crew, ex-girlfriends, prying FBI agents, and his estranged family, the dog may be his only friend as he tries to keep his faith and get through the night.
Efter filmen följer ett samtal med Mubarik Abdirahman och Hakim Abdi.
