Three different kids.

One mission in common:


JOSEF is a Jewish boy living in 1930's Nazi Germany.

With the threat of concentration camps looming,

he and his family board a ship bound for the other side of the world...

ISABEL is a Cuban girl in 1994.

With riots and unrest plaguing her country, she and her family

set out on a raft, hoping to find safety in America...

MAHMOUD is a Syrian boy in 2015. 

With his homeland torn apart by violence and destruction, 

he and his family begin a long trek toward Europe...


All three kids go on harrowing journeys in search of refuge.

All will face unimaginable dangers-from drownings

to bombings to betrayals.

But there is always the hope of tomorrow.

And although Josef, Isabel and Mahmoud are separated

by continents and decades, shocking connections

will tie their stories together in the end.
