Set in the northern Spanish city of Bilbao, HIDDEN AWAY tells the story of the gay relationship between a 14-year-old Spaniard and a young immigrant Moroccan boy who runs away to avoid his imminent deportation.
On the outskirts of a big city, 14 year old Ibrahim is alone and disoriented. He has just been informed that he will be deported in two days, and has packed his bags and run away. For different reasons, Rafa, also 14, is feeling persecuted. His friends are all trying to fix him up with his classmate, but she expects far more of him than he can give.
