(1 of 3)
In this short animation series, director Boryana Ivanova paints intimate portraits of Syrian men and women who not only survive but also prevail the overwhelming situations confronting them.
In this portrait, Ahmad, 19, has little faith in the smugglers but even fewer choices. Unable to swim but confident in his dexterity, Ahmad builds his own boat and heads to Greece taking along a Syrian family just as desperate to escape.
