Country of Origin – Turkey
They fled poverty and war in their countries, violence and torture in Libya, only to meet death and separation at the Mediterranean sea. We met the survivors of a dramatic boat rescue who got separated during the operation. Months later, they still hadn’t been reunited.

People who were already scarred for life after going through Libya before being herded on an inflatable boat. It focuses on the story of two young children who got separated during a dramatic rescue operation.
