There are more refugees in the world today than at any point in history. And half of them are children. “Let Me In” is a cinematic experience which re-imagines the refugee crisis as if it was happening on America’s shores.
Written & directed by Jonathan Olinger, this tale of survival and the remarkable power of the human spirit is inspired by the stories of real refugees. Starring Alicia Keys, the film follows her & her family’s quest to survive after they experience unimaginable violence and embark on a journey that will forever change them.
Along with thousands of Americans fleeing the conflict in Los Angeles, they must seek safety by attempting to cross the border into Mexico. Guided by their resolute love for each other and utter determination, the refugee family must navigate oceans & desserts in their unrelenting pursuit to find refuge and reunite.
The film’s executive producers are Leigh Blake, Alicia Keys, & Erika Rose Santoro. The film’s soundtrack is a new song, “Hallelujah”, off Alicia Keys’ upcoming album to be released later this summer.
