I'm called an asylum seeker, but that's not my name.

We came here on a boat. Our trip took so long, sometimes I wondered if I would ever walk on grass again.

A brave little girl and her mother escape a war-torn land. On the difficult sea voyage there is little to eat, but there is abundant love and caring. Her adopted country offers a safe place to live, a new school, and supportive friends. There are also hurtful labels, flashbacks, and the ever-present ache of a missing father. Over time there‰۪s a new job for her mother, time for play, music ‰ÛÓ even dancing! ‰ÛÓ and hope for the future.

Timely, powerful and moving,åÊOutåÊcelebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the darkest times, and the many paths people take to build a new life.åÊ 4+ Years.
