Inspired by true events, THE FALCONER is about two best friends, Tariq, the Lebanese-born son of a poor beekeeper, and Cai, a privileged Westerner. The inseparable pair work together at a ramshackle zoo in Oman.
Their care-free friendship is challenged when Tariq promises to help his sister, Alia, escape from an abusive marriage. Cai’s love for animals is pitted against Tariq’s daring plan to steal animals from the zoo and sell them.
They are forced to wrestle with moral complexities that reveal the vast distance between their worlds. Will the zoo’s rare Falcon be set free or sold to save Alia?
Directed by Seanne Winslow and Adam Sjoberg
