The musical score and accompanying film amplify first-hand refugee stories through a multimedia artistic experience. Authentic audio and video interview footage provided by TSOS supports the clarinet and fixed media electronics, providing the viewer with an opportunity to reflect as refugees share details of their personal, arduous journeys from a home lost to a home found.
