Paw (also known as Boy of Two Worlds) is a 1959 Danish film directed by Astrid Henning-Jensen. It tells the story of a boy from the Caribbean who, affected by the deaths of his parents and maiden aunt, escapes to the Danish forest.


Paw, a twelve-year-old orphan, arrives in Denmark accompanied by his late father's best friend, as his mother from the Caribbean and his Danish father passed away at his birth. He's to live with his unfamiliar Aunt Bo, who had only cared for her canaries until now. The urbanized country is quite foreign to Paw, leading to one culture shock after another. Rejected by his new environment, he escapes to a nearby Danish forest where he meets the Swedish poacher Anders, forming a close bond.
