For three years, directors Eefje Blankevoort and Els van Driel followed unaccompanied refugee children on their journey through Europe. With creative use of videos made by the teenagers, they managed to create a pioneering portrait of the refugee life. The film won numerous awards at the Human Rights Film Festival in Geneva.
