A Dangerous Crossing

Ghalib’s family has no choice but to flee Syria. Their terrible journey leads them through dark and dangerous places. They are shot at, they are teargassed, they experience the wretched and hopeless life of a refugee camp, and still they have to face the perils of a voyage in a boat that is far from seaworthy. Heartbreaking and stirring, and based on true experiences.
