Aal, Norway

Tobias (17), Amin’s best friend in Aal, sits on a beaten up rallycross car. Amin's plan was to become a car mechanic so he could fix Tobias' car.
"Everything he [Amin] has been through over the past few years is something he should have been without. He didn't needed it. He should have been here, attended school and helped me with my car. We should have been able to do what we've always done: messing around, gaming, talking about everything."
Amin (16) fled from the Taliban in Uruzgan province in Afghanistan and came to Norway in 2009 with his mother, father and two younger siblings. They were moved to the small town of Aal. In January 2014, after almost five years, the family was deported back to Kabul. With the help of human traffickers, Amin made his way back to Europe on his own while his family has gone into hiding in Iran. Amin's dream is to have his old life back - his friends, school, football and safety for his family. He has been in prison twice since his return.
