Synopsis

Interviewed by the BBC towards the end of her family’s perilous four-year journey from war-torn Syria to Germany, Hamsa’s spirited determination caught the attention of two filmmakers. Beginning a new life in the small German village of Schnega, Hamsa welcomes the filmmakers into her family’s home to tell them their story, revealing how they have adapted to their new surroundings and how the village have worked to welcome them into their community. Hamsa’s radiant smile and boundless love for her children shows the untold story of Syrian refugees searching for a safe place to call home.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
