What is it like to live under terrorists every day in one of the most war-torn regions in the world? What does it feel like to take a desperate journey through hell and high seas, leaving everything behind and totally risking your life just to save it? What do people think about just before they are going to die? Do any new dangers lurk ahead for refugees who have arrived safely to another country by boat?
Raed Zanoon’s true-life thriller about escaping the deadly Gaza Strip to Australia on a small wooden fishing boat showcases these experiences and more. Raed’s story proves that if you want to survive war, if you want to overcome destructive regimes from radicalism to racism, if you want to be truly happy and free, then you must arm yourself with the most powerful weapons possible - humour, heart, and hope.
