People leaving their homes in search for a better life. Really personal interviews about how much they miss their home and how hard it is to be accepted abroad.

Romania has lost a higher proportion of its working population than Syria - and it’s not at war. Living conditions in Romania make even Brexit-era England, complete with overt racism and below-minimum wage jobs, preferable to staying home. It’s a powerful moment to reflect on how difficult it has proven to establish a broader range of stable democracies where there is some sense of hope and improvement that will keep people at home. Also a powerful moment to reflect that western countries seem to share a need to rely on cheap, underpaid labour. It’s not just the US/Mexico. It’s everywhere.
