Babai follows Gesim and Nori, a father and son duo struggling to make a living selling cigarettes in nineties Kosovo. Despite Nori trying everything to keep his father close, Gesim slips away, migrating to Germany to look for a better life. Feeling angry and abandoned, ten-year-old Nori embarks alone on the perilous trip over land and sea to find his father. In this beautiful and heartrending film by Visar Morina, we watch as an illegal journey and the search for a loved one leave deep marks on a child’s mind, and test a father-son bond to its limit.
