Two worlds meet when a small town in the Ireland becomes the new home for hundreds of Syrian asylum seekers, brought over from refugee camps in Greece. We follow the story of Ghassan, 20, newly arrived in Ireland after a two-year long journey from Syria. He, along with hundreds of other refugees will live in a former four-star hotel as they wait for their status to be approved. While some of the community offer a friendly and charitable hand, there are others are anxious about the impact of so many strangers in the town.This is a heart warming story about the strength and bond of human kind, and the everyday impact of the greatest crisis facing our generation.
