This excellent FRONTLINE documentary about the European Refugee crisis that follows the lives of some families and individuals who are escaping their home countries be it Syria, Afghanistan and West Africa to different parts of Europe.
There are many aspects of the dangerous journeys that we are not aware of even watching the news. Sadly the human traffickers are liars, money takers and even sell ‘fake’ life jackets to the desperate refugees.
Sometimes it may take months and months of running and hiding. Some even practice swimming before leaving. Some images are from refugees smartphones recording their dangerous journeys. There is more to this than just crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Very tense to watch but well worth it.
