Amir Najjer from Gaza was tortured by masked men and accused of collaborating with Israeli forces. In Norway, his application for asylum has been refused. Authorities believe he can go back to the Gaza Strip, although the UN states that it´s unsafe to return. Now, Amir has signed up for the brand new talent show, So You Think You Can Stay, by Norwegian Organization for Asylum Seekers (NOAS), and hopes that your vote can help him stay in in Norway.

This powerful campaign film by NOAS uses a spoof talent show format to highlight the refuge process in Norway, and exposes the complexities of the application system. While the contestants and judges are fictitious, their stories are based on real asylum cases taken on by NOAS.
