MARY MEETS MOHAMMED

Tasmania’s first detention centre opens and local knitting club member Mary, a staunchly Christian pensioner, is not welcoming of the 400 male asylum seekers mostly from Afghanistan.
Mohammad is a 26 year old Muslim asylum seeker detained inside the centre and an unlikely friendship develops between Mary and Mohammad after her knitting club donates woollen beanies to the asylum seekers.
Mary finds many of her prior beliefs are challenged as her relationship with Mohammad deepens.For more information please contact Neylan –
