Lost in Africa

93 minutes 2010 5.9


11 year old Simon is adopted and travels with his Danish mother to Kenya, where he was born. Simon does not have much interest in his homeland and would rather be in Denmark playing football. Already on the first day of the trip things go wrong: Simon disappears, and his mother decides to go to the media and pledge a bounty to the one who finds him. Simon is kept trapped in Nairobi's slum, and it's hard to know who to trust and not.
