Young filmmaker David Mason's debut feature documentary gives us insight into stories of children trying to live a normal life in the midst of facing unimaginable loss.

This documentary is about three ordinary teenagers with extraordinary stories, who join the Treehouse Theatre, an after-school theatre group. Through dedicated teachers, they are part of a community that supports them to share their personal stories which is scripted and transformed into a moving stage performance.

Asfar, Maryam and Wiam were forced to leave their home countries and everything they knew. Now in Australia, they face the challenges of not just navigating high school, but facing all that entails, being at a new school, a new country and starting a new life. This is not your typical refugee film. It tells a tender story of transformation, acceptance and belonging. A coming of age story, this uplifting doco gives you a taste of what it means to remake your home as a teenager and a displaced person.

Don't miss it!
