Light on the Sea

Light on the Sea is the dramatic story of the refugee crisis told through the perspective of volunteers on the front lines helping them find safety, and the refugees they encounter who have risked their lives crossing the Aegean to get to Europe, a journey they call in Arabic, rihlat al moot, “The Route of Death.”
