Exodus: Our Journey to Europe
The refugee's begin their journey, fleeing Syria and arriving in Turkey's port of Izmir, filming every step of the way.
Ahmad's journey continues through this episode. A Syrian Kurd, he has reached Athens, and rather than take the long and uncertain overland route through Europe, he negotiates with a smuggler for a fake passport that he can use to fly to France. Also leaving Athens is 21-year-old Sadiq from Afghanistan, fleeing Taliban repression and violence for Finland - a country of which he's never even seen a picture. Meanwhile, 11-year-old Isra and her family group of 16 people are approaching the Serbian border. They're shocked by the total chaos that greets them and are forced to spend hours in the mud and pouring rain with no certainty that they'll be able to continue their journey to Germany.
Alaigie is preparing to leave Gambia to travel 'the back way', 6,000 kilometres to Italy to find work. Following his father's death, Alaigie's dreams of becoming an engineer were shattered and he needs to earn money to support his family. He films the dangerous journey through Africa via a network of smugglers, at the mercy of thieves and violent border guards, across the Sahara in overloaded trucks to Tripoli where he is kidnapped and held for ransom.
