In this first episode we meet Dame, who arrived in the UK over 17 months ago. "I am a ghost in a prison" is how he describes his experience of life as a refugee in London.

Ali and are Sharin are newly weds from Afghanistan. They have spent the last month camping on the streets of Thessaloniki, waiting for smugglers to get them across the heavily guarded borders into Macedonia and Serbia. This is not the honeymoon they dreamed of.

Nazifa and Latif and their two young children are living in a container in a refugee camp near Athens. Nazifa is six months pregnant. Nazifa tells us, "We are in a cage here." They are determined to make it to Germany and provide a better future for their children but face the most difficult decisions of their lives.

It has taken Azizula nearly a year to reach Serbia. He is living in freezing conditions in an abandoned railway carriage in Belgrade. He is alone and is almost paralysed by what lies ahead. Returning to Afghanistan is not an option. Show less
