Jupiter's Moon

From Hungarian auteur Kornél Mundruczó, a young refugee gets the power to fly after being shot crossing a border.

"Entering into Hungary illegally, young Aryan [Zsombor Jéger] is separated from his father and shot. Wounded, terrified and shocked, he discovers that he can levitate at will. In a refugee camp filled with desperation, his strange powers are noticed by Dr Stern [Merab Ninidze]. Aryan is spirited away from the camp, and Dr Stern is determined to exploit his new charge’s abilities to make as much money as possible, promising him refuge, riches and a reunion with his father. But the duo is being pursued by the relentless camp director, Laszlo [György Cserhalmi], who’s determined to find Aryan." (Sydney Film Festival)
