A six-year-old boy named Hossain grows up in the world’s largest refugee camp in Bangladesh as the Rohingya refugee crisis becomes increasingly dangerous.


Hossain arrived at the refugee camps in Bangladesh with his parents and six siblings in August 2017 along with approximately 800,000 other people when violence against the Rohingya in Myanmar escalated. These refugees are at the frontlines of the most urgent challenges facing humans today, including: hate, climate change, poverty, xenophobia, and immigration.

Hossain’s story will be a heart-wrenching view into how young lives are vulnerable to these global issues. We will use this film as the centerpiece of a multi-level campaign to create change for the Rohingya people and Hossain’s family.
