Maryam, a tenacious six-year-old Irani refugee, has just started at a school for new immigrants in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden. She’s the last to arrive and so is behind the other children in terms of language and social skills. The Quiet One offers an intimate look at what it’s like for Maryam, capturing her quiet struggle to adapt to a foreign climate and culture. Shannon Abel
