Film Fridays: This Is Home

This Is Home is an intimate portrait of four Syrian refugee families arriving in America and struggling to find their footing. With only eight months of help from the International Rescue Committee to become self-sufficient, they must forge ahead to rebuild their lives in a new home: Baltimore, Maryland.  When the newly imposed travel ban adds further complications, their resilience is put to the test. Through humor and heartbreak, this universal story illuminates what it’s like to start over.
