about

A little girl and her mother have fled their homeland, making the long and treacherous journey to find a new place to call home.

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 - even dancing! - and hope for the future.

Timely, powerful and moving, Out celebrates the resilience of the human spirit in the darkest times, and the many paths people take to build a new life.
