When your world is crumbling, who do you turn to? Fighting a lifelong battle for compensation for her crumbling house, an elderly woman finds a young refugee living on her doorstep. Can she trust him with her safety? Can he trust her with his? Mortars is a unique film, part documentary, part fiction, using actors and non-actors, it tells a tale embedded in Western Sydney and yet universal in its themes. At its heart this film quietly celebrates our ability as human beings to overcome our personal fears and prejudice, in the face of another's suffering and need for assistance.
