In recent years a growing number of people have come to Ireland to start new lives. This short fascinating documentary talks to Syrians who fled the war about their lives in Syria before the war. It also talks to those helping them – people like Calvin James of Scoop Foundation and Columban Fr Bobby Gilmore who helped found the Migrants Rights Centre Ireland. Produced by Fr Malachy Smyth. Directed by Paul Harney of That’s That Productions.
