The Year We Grew Up.

Three young men endeavour to navigate their way through life, overcome the obstacles that life throws at them and make a future for themseleves. It’s a voyage of self discovery where secrets are revealed and where they must confront their relationships with each other and with their families.


Part One – Exodus


Can you imagine the future when you are thirteen years old? When you’ve lost everything? From the ruins of war in a bombed out town in Syria; the desperation of refugee camps; and slum cities in Turkey, the paramount goal is safety and the impossible: Europe. This story is of our time and does not shy away from harsh reality. There is abuse, exploitation, huge risk, suffering and pain, but there is also romance and a few good souls.

Part Two – The Land of Promise

REF2 Cover

Samir and Amar have made it out of war torn Syria, they left behind all their friends, and in Turkey found a new friend, Firas. Sadly Burhan, the old man who gave a home to the boys in Gaziantep, passed away. Their hope now rests in the hands of Jordan, a young American, who has promised to take them with him to Antalya, a coastal town about a days journey from Gaziantep, and a step closer to the land of promise.
