A strand and a stormy sea. While we watch two children playing in the sand, five young refugees – some of them minors – from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Gambia speak about their families, about their escape from violence, and about their hopes and dreams. The refugees were interviewed by theatre director Susanne Reng against the background of the big refugee crisis in Europe in 2015
