Summary
Every year millions of refugees escape civil war and human rights violations in search of a new homeland. Roughly 13,000 are accepted into Australia. But what happens once they arrive? This intimate documentary, filmed with the cooperation of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Australian government's resettlement agencies, looks at two refugee families who escaped civil war and violence in their homeland, hoping for a fresh start on safer shores. For the ethnic Karen family from Burma, so many things are startling - suburbs that seem to be for cars not people, too many clothes to choose from, automatic teller machines, and chickens wrapped in plastic. But learning English in 510 hours of government paid lessons is proving the biggest challenge. Constance Okat and her extended family came to Australia after fleeing civil war in Sudan. For Constance, the task is trying to reunite all the members of her family that have been separated for over ten years. She is also trying to challenge the notion that refugees do not assimilate in Australian society
