NIC Global Learning Initiative Presents: Everybody's Children

This documentary captures a year in the life of two teenage refugees, Joyce and Sallieu, who have left their own countries to make a new life in Ontario. Joyce, 17, left the Democratic Republic of Congo to avoid being forced into prostitution by her family. Sallieu, 16, had witnessed the murder of his mother as a young boy in war-torn Sierra Leone. The film follows them as they bear the normal pressures of being a teenager while simultaneously undergoing the refugee application process.
