Synopsis

When little Abboudi and his grandfather are left behind by the truck they are travelling in, the young boy must take responsibility for everything – a task well beyond his years. Nevertheless, it isn’t long before the pair have shelter and Abboudi works on a plan to get the older man the medication he needs. ‘Cargo’ is a hard-hitting film that shows that being forced to rely on the kindness of strangers is no match for the vagaries of fate.
