With no answer to her application for resettlement in the US, and every other path to safety closed off, a smuggler’s raft to Europe is the only way out. Discover the realities faced by this fiercely-determined mother and learn why she is willing to risk her children’s lives for a better future.  The acclaimed documentary is an immersive experience of their eight-day journey to safety.
