Description:
When Hamed Amiri was ten years old he watched his mother give a speech in his home town of Herat, Afghanistan, speaking out for women's rights and education, and against the ruling Taliban. That night, an order was given for her execution. The family packed up their most precious belongings and escaped in darkness, starting what would be a long and dangerous journey. But his mothers' was not the only life in danger. Hamed's older brother suffered a rare heart condition, and this escape offered a chance of life-saving treatment in the West. Exploring the humanity of refugeeism, this is not only a tale of a family in crisis, but a love letter to the NHS, which provided hope and reassurance as they sought asylum in the UK and fought to save their loved ones.
