SYNOPSIS

"Exodus - Where I Come From is Disappearing" tells the incredible stories of six people from different parts of the world who have been forced to leave their homes and build their lives under new challenging circumstances.

Napuli, a political activist, had to flee South Sudan via Uganda to Germany, where she is fighting for the right to stay. Tarcha was born in Western Sahara, and had to flee to Algeria, in 1975, because of the Moroccan invasion, and has lived since then in refugee camps. Born in Syria, Dana arrived in Brazil via Turkey, and is desperate to reunite with her family in Canada, and Nizar, a Palestinian-Syrian, is on his journey from Brazil via Cuba to Europe, where he is hoping to find refuge and to bring his family. Bruno, from Togo, spent 9 years in German camps, until he was finally able to legalize his status there, and has helping other refugees since then. Lahtow and Mahka from Kachin, Myanmar, had to leave their homes due to the ongoing military conflict; though located amidst a war zone, Mahka faces the danger to visit his abandoned home with his family.
