Imagine all the pressures of starting a new school, and now add some further challenges – all the students are from different cultural and language backgrounds, have fled from conflict zones with their families, and are at the mercy of pending asylum claims. At this Red Cross school in Denmark, each child has a harrowing tale of adversity and survival. The teacher, Dorte, becomes a champion for the children, etching a safe and nurturing space for them amidst otherwise turbulent existences. At Home in the World is an intimate and engaging film that provides a vital addition to the global conversation on the current refugee crisis.
