In four 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. 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.
