3 wins. See more awards »




A group of Syrian children living as refugees in Istanbul are each paired with an international student to converse and share some life stories. Despite the chaos and difficulties these young refugees have endured fleeing their war-torn home nation they show that they have retained their grit, tenacity and sense of humour. As conversation flows between the series of improbable duos it becomes evident that though there might exist a number of cultural and linguistic barriers ultimately there is more common ground than one might have previously thought. Bonding over pizza, football and an Arabic copy of the little prince amongst other things the young refugees make this realisation inevitable and champion their own resilience and humanity through a series of endearing encounters with their international counterparts.
