ABDI AZIIS, ALI DAYAH ABDI AND THE VOICE OF HAMADI ALABDAHL IN A FILM BY VICTOR LINDGREN BASED ON A ORIGINAL STORY BY MELKER GARAY
Two men are hiding behind a fence at a border checkpoint. They have just started their escape from oppression and persecution in their home country. Only one of them will arrive in Sweden. He is the comet.
The comet is an interpretation of Melker Garay's short story with the same title, directed by Victor Lindgren and played by Abdi Aziis who himself undertook a similar hellish voyage from Somalia to Sweden to escape oppression and persecution of homosexuals. He is our comet.
