Storyline

The story is to based on real young refugee stories, which we will source through a partnership that we have secured with Maram Foundation, based in Turkey. They work with unaccompanied minors.

The story shows the aftermath of young unaccompanied refugees, but contrasts it to flashbacks (cutscenes) of a more “normal” life before this so that gamers can relate to the characters. The sibling relationship also shows significant change from a more “normal” life to a now very different one. Where siblings exhibit competitiveness, jealousy, friendship in a normal setting, and then have changed to a caring, guardianship role, out of necessity.
