This documentary follows Syrian refugees making the perilous journey from the Middle East to Europe.
More and more refugee claimants are walking into Canada from the United States. They take this arduous journey because they feel increasingly threatened in the USA and because the alternatives
they face might be isolation, incarceration, or deportation. Who are they, where are they coming from, what should we be doing? Why should you care?
Director: George Kurian
Cast: Nabil Hilaneh, Angela Al Souliman, Rami Aramouni
