FILM BIO & INFO

SYNOPSIS

In four bloody years, over four million people have fled Syria to neighbouring countries. More than half of the refugees are children who have experienced both the brutality of war and the painful insecurity of exile.
Most Syrians believed their escape would be temporary. They hoped to return to their homes when the bombs stopped falling, when schools opened again, when the violence ended.
Few predicted their exile would last years, and potentially decades. According to UNHCR, refugees spend an average of 17 years in limbo, unable to go home or move on with life. Is that the fate that awaits the millions of refugees of one of modern history’s most devastating conflicts?
Narrated entirely by the children themselves, “This is Exile – Diaries of Child Refugees” plunges audiences into their universe of painful memories, continued challenges and ever-evolving hopes and dreams for the future.
